With traffic rules being regularly violated in the state, it was essential to put a check on habitual offenders.  The e-challan system, an official written notice by the traffic department, has ensured that people follow rules even when traffic police aren’t around to patrol the roads.

Clamping down on serial traffic offenders, as many as 36 RTOs (Regional Transport Office) and ARTO (Assistant Regional Transport Officer) offices of 33 districts in Gujarat have issued e-challans worth Rs 92.21 crore in May. According to the Right to Information (Information Act, 2005), e-challans to the tune of Rs 92,21,94,224 has been issued in the state between September 2021 and August 2022.

The challans were issued for penalties against violation of traffic rules under the Motor Vehicle Act.

Ahmedabad attracted the highest penalty of Rs 11,62,62,219 during the period. Surat was second placed with Rs 6,57,34,279, followed by Banaskantha district (Rs 5,27,74,833).

The state’s Ahwa-Dang ARTO office issued the lowest e-memo at Rs. 21,34,096.

The highest e-memo in the state (Rs 11,19,77495) was issued in March last year and the lowest was in November 2021 (Rs 5,76,24,818(.

Traffic offenders are unable to escape owing to the presence of CCTV cameras on roads. Intimation of fines on account of traffic violations is sent to the registered addresses of the offenders. The e-challans are sent to the mobile numbers of rule breakers, detailing the date and time of traffic violations.
