Delhi may soon have an E-way of paying traffic challans.


For a traffic violator, it could mean simply punching your credit or debit card number on the website

In an effort to modernise the system before the Commonwealth Games in October, the Delhi Traffic police are making efforts to change the way they work.

The system will be called E-Challaning and is said to be closely based on the Bangalore Traffic Police’s method. “In Bangalore a person can pay online to a notice. All he has to do is type in the notice number, the registration number of the vehicle and give his email id along with the credit or debit card details,” said a senior police officer, requesting anonymity.

He added if the person commits future violations, the notice could be initially sent to them via e-mail.

“We are planning to introduce e-challaning to the city. We will link notices to the central system,” said Special Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Ajay Chadha.

Also, police officers on beat duty may be provided with Blackberry cellphones, which would give them a much-needed technological teeth for keeping a tab on habitual offenders.

The process has begun. The traffic police are sifting through different companies for the best deal to launch their project.
