In order to enforce traffic rules in the city and to digitalise the mode of payment for citizens to pay challan, district traffic department will be distributing 136 e-challan machines to every police station in the Dehradun district. This step will also help police department to keep records of repeat offenders.
Superintendent of Police (traffic) Prakash Chandra Arya said, “We conducted a training programme for police force from all police stations that will be operating the machine. They were briefed about the technicalities, procedure and the precautions they have to take. Members from National Informatics Centre (NIC) were also present during the workshop and they briefed about the software and its functioning.”
According to sources, the e-challan machine will not put a stop to manual challans but people will also be able to pay the fine online. There will be a unique QR ID through which it will be possible to pay the penalty online.
