Delhi is one of the busiest cities and most populated cities in India today, in the recent years, the traffic on roads has tripled and keeping track of the traffic violations has become nearly impossible for the traffic police. This is why a new system has been implemented to keep track of the traffic and control traffic issues.
The new system uses advanced systems like surveillance cameras and E-Challan system that keep track of the traffic on the roads and fines any driver who breaks the traffic rules. One of the best things about this system is that it requires comparatively less human labour. E-Challan system has several advantages and citizens have already started responding kindly to the system. One of the major benefits of E-Challan system employed by the Delhi government is that anyone can pay the fine online and this system is more transparent than traditional system.
Once you receive an E-Challan, you will have to pay the fine and there is no way you could bypass this system. Here are 2 ways to pay your traffic e-Challan online.
- Through Delhi traffic police website
- Using Tatpar App
E-Challan is commonly sent to the vehicle owner’s registered address and there are instances where the E-Challan might not reach the owner due to change of address. This does not mean that the owner of the car could simply neglect to pay the fine. This is why the government has designed a website that would allow any citizen to check for pending E-Challan. The same website can also allow any citizen to check the status of an E-Challan and make sure every fine has been paid.
