A new mobile app that allows the police to issue e-challans for traffic violations was launched in Gujarat’s major cities on Tuesday. The app, developed with the help of the National Informatics Centre (NIC), is part of the One Nation One Challan initiative.
The app covers various traffic offenses, such as not wearing a helmet, seatbelt, or parking properly. Offenders can pay their fines quickly through their phones or within 90 days of receiving the e-challan. If they fail to pay on time, the fine will be transferred to a virtual court, and then to a physical court after 45 days of non-payment, where they may face legal action.
One of the app’s notable features is its instant notification of e-challans to the respective Regional Transport Offices (RTOs). This ensures that vehicle owners cannot sell or transfer their vehicles until they clear all their dues.
The app also empowers the police to penalize vehicles and offenders from other states, as it is linked with RTOs across the country for tracking and fining those who break traffic rules.
