In Mumbai the traditional method of paying challan is going to stop soon as Mumbai transport department is planned to launch e-challan system in January-February 2016.The main objective of e-challan system is to reduce traffic violations,malpractices and establishment costs.
As a part of this Hand-held gadgets will be provided to traffic constables & officers who will be on duty in the the streets on which if any traffic violator is stopped and a receipt can be issued to him or her.They will have to pay fine amount online apart from this in some key areas including Gateway of India, Girgaum Chowpatty, E Moses Road, Kala Ghoda and Marine drive 1381 CCTV cameras have been installed.Now traffic police/officers can keep a track of all the suspicious events in the city.
Mumbai traffic police will start issuing e-challans to the offenders who is caught on camera using the surveillance network. The Core idea behind digitization of the challan system is to abolish cash transactions for collection of fines in traditional method. The CCTV cameras will capture number plates of traffic violators, hence using information captured in CCTV cameras cops will trace the details of the vehicle owners from the regional RTO and e-challans will be issued to the addresses submitted to RTO at the time of registration of the vehicle.
As a primary part the vehicle's address and owner details (which are registered before 2006) are being collected by the traffic police and the RTO has been directed by the court to help the traffic police in this regard within a span of six months.Hence all the city vehicles information will be maintained in database and when they captured in CCTV camera by violating traffic rules e-challan will be issued to registered vehicle user.
Mumbai Transport department is planned to reduce the handling of cash by traffic constables slowly. Generally,to reduce paying the full penalty, violators pay a lesser amount of cash and do not take vouchers and get away.Also when a traffic violator pays fine and takes the voucher, handling the money has its own costs. This penalty money has to be submitted to the cashier who then will have to count it before depositing it in banks. All these operations are lengthy and require money and manpower. With this e-challan system these activities can be reduced and the money saved by the department will be utilized for other development purposes.
