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. The show depicted their lives as they try to solve every case which comes to Imaan Chowki.
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 took a 20-year leap when Kavita Kaushik, who played the lead role, departed from the show and introduced Chitrashi Rawat as Chandramukhi's daughter, Jwalamukhi Chautala, who reveals that Chandramukhi married Bajrang Pandey. The changes were reverted on 8 July 2013 and the incidents occurring in the 20 year leap were converted into constable Gopi's dream and the show then continued along with Chandramukhi Chautala's return.
After the show returns to normal, Chandramukhi faces many problems and tries to solve all cases. Also her love interests are introduced, first Bhola Pandit and then her old love Bajrang Pandey. She is also shown blowing a whistle and controlling the traffic in some scenes.
