Sh. Narender Modi,

Prime Minister,

7 Lok Kalyan Marg,

Delhi-110001.

Sir,                                                     PMOPG/E/2022/0160767                        

Concerned Department: Delhi Police.

 

Issuing notices in newspapers to seek the help of the public in searching lost persons, terrorists, or identifying unclaimed dead bodies is an age-old practice. These notices containing photographs are issued by the concerned police station in the local newspaper. It has been observed that all these photographs are still being published in black & white. This might have been the practice when this system was initiated, as in those days the newspapers were printed only in B&W ink but today, amidst advancements in printing technologies, continuing with the old practice of B&W does not seem to have any rationale.

 

The fact that Black & White television sets have vanished confirms the end of B&W era. Everyone knows that any image is clearer in mind when seen in colour. Specifically, when something is to be searched with the help of a photograph, the coloured one would have a clear advantage. The statutory warning sign on cigarette packets was converted to colour after an initial start in black & white only because colour image was considered more effective. Now, when even the cheapest mobile handset can click a coloured picture, no apparent reason or logic is understood behind such a practice.

 

To inquire about the rationale of this practice correspondence was undertaken with Delhi Police and couple of RTIs were also filed but no concrete reasoning for the same has been given. It has been stared that this depends on the choice/requirement of inquiry officer? So the point is why inquiry officers are choosing B&W photographs when colour option is available? Such an approach by Police concerning lost/unidentified people is appreciated.

 

So, in order to improve the effectiveness of such notices suitable instruction may please be issued to Delhi Police for printing of all such notices in colour.

 

For consideration please.

 

 

Regards,

 

S K Goyal

A grievance was also filed vide reference number PMOPG/E/2022/0160767 but the same has been closed without taking any action.

 

So, in order to improve the effectiveness of such notices suitable instruction may please be issued to Delhi Police for printing of all such notices in colour.
