POLICE ARE INTRODUCING THE E-CHALLAN SYSTEM -ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW
E-challan is now introducing by traffic police. The next time you are trapped in a traffic offense, you must sign the receipt online and collect an imprint on-site. In order to resolve cases of police searching out bribes and helping track serial criminals, Chennai city traffic police are introducing an e Challan scheme.
A pilot is introducing and 21 mobile sensors are used at separate intersections. Finally, 300 such instruments, procured through World Bank support, will be used by Traffic Police.
Through using Blackberry devices Bangalore was at the forefront in implementing an e-challan scheme to digitally archive all offenses on a central server. Several other cities have started implementing similar schemes, such as Delhi and Hyderabad.
Sanjay Arora, Additional Police Commissioner (Traffic) explained how the Chennai system works:
“The recording plate information will enter on this unit after a vehicle has flagged up for an offense. GPRS communicates to a central registry holding the records of all 32 lakh vehicles in the city and then returning the summary of the car. If a match occurs, the crime will book, an e-content will register and the information saves on the computer. If the registration number does not conform to the definition, a stolen car will be used and analysis will begin.”
He says that repeat criminals can identify.
also, the police can easily analyze the form, extent, and location of traffic crimes by means of this digital footprint.
Evading fines will get harder as the past of the crime will stay on the amount of registration of the car and in the RTO office.
Because every traffic policeman has a specific password to use the handheld unit.
the accountability of fines received is making more clear.
“Any room for arbitrary use is cutting off,” said Mr. Arora.
Only facilities like payment of the fines online and payment by Credit/debit card will available when the e-challan system is fully implemented.
