E-challan is a digital portal that allows for traffic-related maintenance as well as enabling online payment of traffic fines. Integrated with the state transportation system, it helps in the implementation of road and traffic rules.
The digital solution is available as a web-based as well as a mobile-based application and can be used to issue traffic fines as well as enable payment from the violators. The portal aims to simplify traffic maintenance while improving transparency in the system.
How it works?
For the e-challan system, vehicles are tracked by cameras placed strategically on roads. Upon any traffic violation, the driver of said vehicle is issued with the e-challan. He/she is then intimated about it through an SMS sent to their registered mobile number.
Integrated with the two applications introduced by the Central Government VAHAN and Sarathi, e-challan offers several user-friendly features encompassing all necessary and applicable enforcements. Not to mention, it aids in the enforcement system’s implementation.
Issue of E-Challan to Fine Vehicles in Pune
As the transportation control and maintenance of Pune city remains within the jurisdiction of Maharashtra state, the issue of challans in the city is also governed by the state authorities.
Hence, with the integration of e-challans in the state’s transportation system, traffic enforcement authorities in Pune can issue e-challans for traffic rule violations and collect fines, thereby. Once issued, the intimation of such issue will be sent to the violator’s mobile number via SMS.
Vehicle owners who have violated traffic rules and have been issued e-challans can thus make online payment of the amount fined.
