What is the Difference between a General Diary Entry and an FIR?

General diary (GD) entry or Daily diary entry is made when any kind of complaint is lodged & police enter the details in their records.Thereafter,if police believe that there is some prima facie evidence of a cognizable offense being committed, it is registered as FIR.

If the complaint made is relating to non-cognizable offense, General diary entry will still be made,but thereafter,it will be entered into a non-cognizable report.General diary entry is, therefore, a stage prior to FIR or non-cognizable report.General diary entry is an internal police record,while in case of FIR or non-cognizable report,a copy of these will be provided to the Complainant.
