F.I.R. is an Indian television sitcom that aired from 31 July 2006 to 23 January 2015, on SAB TV. The show was produced by Edit 2 Productions. It was nominated for the Best Sitcom category at the Indian Telly Awards in 2009. The sitcom was set in a police station.
F.I.R. is a situational comedy serial centered on a Haryanvi female police officer named Chandramukhi Chautala and her three subordinates, Head Constable Gopinath Gandothra, Constable Mulayam Singh Gulgule and Constable Billu, who later joined the Chowki. The show depicted their lives as they try to solve every case which comes to their police station Imaan Chowki, Ravanpur.
New cases come to the police station in every episode. An individual or a group come with a complaint or a problem. The problem generally has nothing to do with police. It may be a case of love, divorce, snoring, or bad cooking. Chandramukhi Chautala and her constables solve the case successfully though the case has nothing to do with their official duties as police officers.
The show also had some love angles of Chandramukhi Chautala with the Chief Inspectors (with one at a time) of Imaan Chowki. First was Hanuman Prasad Pandey which was one-sided from Chandramukhi, second was Raj Aaryan which was one-sided from Raj, and third was Bajrang Pandey, both he and Chandramukhi love each other but Bajrang fears to admit his love.
Gopi dreams of Chandramukhi's departure from the police station after 20 years and her daughter Jwalamukhi Chautala is assigned as the new inspector which revealed that Chandramukhi and Bajrang Pandey got married which lasted for about 70 episodes.
However, after the new normals, few more Chandramukhi's love angles with Chief Inspectors were resumed as before, first with Bhola Pandit and then her old love Bajrang Pandey were shown.

The show took a 20-year leap on 16 March 2013, when Kavita Kaushik who played the lead role of Chandramukhi Chautala, departed from the show and Jwalamukhi Chautala (Chitrashi Rawat) was introduced as Chandramukhi's daughter, who reveals that Chandramukhi married Bajrang Pandey. This 20-year-leap story wasn't much praised by fans and the show declined in popularity, so within less than four months after the 20-year leap (approximately 70 episodes), the changes of 20-year leap were reverted on 8 July 2013 and the incidents which occurred in the 20-year leap were converted into constable Gopi's dream and the show then continued along with Chandramukhi Chautala's return.
