Yes, registering of an FIR is necessary in case an offence has been committed and you are reporting the offence at the concerned Police Station.If you are reporting a cognisable crime and the police refuse to register your FIR, you can make a complaint to a higher ranking officer such as the Superintendent of Police (SP), the Deputy Inspector General (DIG) or the Inspector General of Police (IGP).
