Traffic police to switch to e-challans

The decision to start issuing e-challans in Punjab has been made and this task will be handed over to the wardens.

According to the traffic police officials, instead of a challan, slips will be issued under the online system for violating traffic rules in Lahore and other parts of Punjab. Complete details, including the area and data of the violator, would be uploaded in the android application and printed on the challan via a smart printer.

According to traffic police officials, the process of purchase of printers has started on the orders of DIG Traffic. Smart printers were being procured according to the number of officers who would be issuing challans in each district. As a pilot project, e-challaning would be started by distributing printers in different cities on March 23.

It is pertinent to mention that e-challaning would eliminate all data centralisation and corruption of challans. In this regard, traffic officials in Punjab are being trained with the collaboration of the Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB).
