USE OF E-CHALLAN SOFTWARE TO CHECK TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS IN KOLKATA

USE OF NEW TECHNOLOGY IN TRAFFIC DEPARTMENT-

With increasing time, more advanced technologies are being implemented in almost all sectors. In the past couple of years itself; the traffic department has started using new techniques and systems in their day-to-day working activities; such as the use of CCTV cameras throughout the country, the use of e-challans, and online portals for various traffic-related purposes.

Almost all the states have adopted the new E-challan system in India, where if any vehicle is caught violating any kind of traffic rules on cameras, an e-challan will be sent immediately to the violator’s mobile number. State-wise online portals have been launched, where people can check their challan status and also pay their fines.

In Kolkata, new E-challan software has been launched in the E-challan system.

  • This software is integrated with the National Database for Vehicle Registration (Vahaan) and driver’s license.
  • This database has a list of all vehicles and any traffic violations that have been recorded under this.
  • This list will contain all the vehicles of the country, not just that of Kolkata.
  • Therefore, a person whose license is challaned or canceled under a major traffic offense will not be able to issue a license in another jurisdiction.

ABOUT THE NEW E-CHALLAN SOFTWARE-

  • The software will be able to read all the e-documents that a person will carry on their mobile phones.
  • People do not need to carry the physical copy of any vehicle’s documents with them everywhere.
  • The traffic police will also be able to seize or suspend the e-documents, and also issue e-challans in case of traffic violations.
  • If a person is found violating traffic rules, the police will lock their e-documents.
  • The violator will then not be able to access any of their e-documents until they pay their fines.
  • If they are found violating traffic rules again, the traffic police will be able to see that the e-documents of violator’s vehicles have already been locked for violations previously connected.
  • And that, the fine of the previous violations have not yet been cleared.
