Abstract: Blockchain technology is one the emerging technology today. Using blockchain the primary goal that is achieved is security. Along with security many other aspects can be achieved using blockchain. Blockchain is nothing but a chain of blocks which are connected by hashing. We can see that every new technology has become a part of our life. This technology is proving to be helpful in all the fields like education, agriculture, business, government and many more. We can also understand how beneficial it is, as it saves the time, money and human power. But this never-ending technology is lacking to provide security. The Indian Police Department has replaced the manual system with the centralized online process to register the complaint. There are many malpractices in resolution of complaints. So, to avoid them a system is proposed which helps complainer to track the complaint, get ongoing details, and enforce police officers to solve the complaints within stipulated time to avoid unnecessary delay. The main objective of this system is to provide a method to secure the FIR system using blockchain technology. The principal components of blockchain technology viz. security, transparency, decentralization, immutability prove to be helpful for securing this digitalized process. The system uses transparency of blockchain technology as the user can track the complaint at any time. The system uses hashing to provide immutability so that no one can tamper the data entered by the complainer. Smart contracts are used to avoid delay in solving the case. This will avoid malpractices and provide satisfiable results.
Keywords: Blockchain, transparency, decentralization, immutability, FIR.
