As technology is growing day by day, it is an innovative way of doing work with various smart ways and e-challan is one of the examples. An e-challan is an electronically generated challan document that is issued with the help of an electronic challan system.
E-Challan happens to be one of the comprehensive digital solutions for traffic/transport enforcement that is integrated with Vaahan and Saarathi applications. Most of all, it enhances the visibility of offenders and better traffic management. It works on two systems – issuing challans through personal contact, which is when a policeman catches a violator & issues a challan, and the other is through non-contact, wherein challans are sent through SMS after the violation is caught by CCTV cameras.
Haryana Government has put out an automatic e-challan system in place for overspeeding in the state. The Chief Minister of the state, Manohar Lal Khattar said “We have a plan to bring an automatic challan system for overspeeding on roads in some areas,” The violator will get an SMS about the debit of the fine amount, he said.
Khattar further said the state government had collected a fine to the tune of Rs.72 crore for different traffic rule-related violations, including overspeeding and overloading in the last five months. He said around 25,000 challans were issued for different violations.
The CM said that from November 2019 till March 2020, a total of 9,800 challans were issued and a fine of Rs.37 crore was collected for such violations
