Taking cue from Successful E-challan Systems running at Hyderabad and other southern cities Delhi Traffic Police floated a tender to implement the system at New Delhi. Tender was floated in August 2012 and the system is likely to in full force by March 2013.
E-challan is a system which will ensure that violators do not get away easily. the methodology adopted in E-challan is that every traffic violation is supported with a photo which can reproduced to the violator in case he wishes to contest the Traffic violation ticket or challan.
The system entails the provision and distribution of hand-held devices to challaning officers. The information will be transmitted to a central server which will process the details in addition to updating its database.
The traffic police have been working for years to enforce the e-challan system in the capital.
