Tightening the noose around commuters violating traffic rules, Delhi Traffic Police now will be seen with an electronic device rather the Challan Book. This hi-tech pilot project has already kicked off in RK Puram, Vasant Vihar and Kalyanpuri areas of Delhi. The fully-fledged e-challan system will be operation from March next year.
The e-challan system will help Traffic Police in maintaining online records. With the help of this technology, will be able to trace how many times a vehicle has violated the traffic rules.
Using this system, challans will be issued electronically with hand-held devices, and repeat offenders will pay more. Traffic cops will be armed with hand-held computers attached to a camera and a printer. Photographs of violations will be used as documentary evidence. The devices will be connected to a central server where details will be saved for future reference. The systems will also be GPS-enabled in the final phase. These will have a facility to swipe both credit cards and licenses, making the payment of challans easier.
