WHAT IS THE E-CHAL­LAN SYS­TEM

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI MUMBAI -

Ac­cord­ing to the e-chal­lan sys­tem, CCTVs placed along roads cap­ture im­ages through which ve­hi­cle num­bers are iden­ti­fied. Screen­shots and video clip­pings from the cam­eras are used as ev­i­dence, based on which, e-chal­lans are pre­pared and posted to of­fend­ers, along with a cov­er­ing let­ter from the traf­fic in­spec­tor. The e-chal­lan in­cludes an im­age of the ve­hi­cle, while the cov­er­ing let­ter pro­vides de­tails of the of­fence and the lo­ca­tion, and of­fers the op­tions of ei­ther pay­ing a com­pounded fine or mov­ing court. The traf­fic depart­ment had also started on the spot chal­lans last year. How­ever; the sys­tem was shut down within three months owing to tech­ni­cal glitches in the de­vices used to print the chal­lans. As of now, of­fend­ers who have been is­sued e-chal­lans have to pay fines by ei­ther com­ing per­son­ally to the traf­fic head­quar­ters or on­line through the state po­lice’s web­site.
