Aiming to make payment of fines for traffic rule violations easy and hassle-free, the Kolkata Police traffic department on Monday announced an e-challan system which will be implemented in the city starting Tuesday.
Currently, violators have to wait in queue for their turn – which sometimes takes more than a day – to pay the fine at the challan branch. On the other hand, violators at times receive the challan far too late.

“We are doing away with the physical receipt concept to simplify the process for the sergeants; the internal process used to take a longer time earlier. This will help to maintain transparency,” said Additional Commissioner of Police sergeants (I) Vineet Goyal.
According to information provided by officials, the sergeants will have to give the necessary information of the person being prosecuted.
The rest of the data will be auto-populated. In this system, violators will be able to see details of the case history under which he or she is being fined. If the violators agree to pay on the spot, a case number will be generated on their mobile, which will have the link and receipt details.
Through the new system, the police will create a centralised databank of all vehicles, details of their registered owners and driving licenses. It will help police in the field to access the data and verify the credentials of the driver, the vehicle and its owner at the same time, and generate a challan immediately.
However, with the new online system in place, the documents will be verified at the time of issuing of the challan itself.
