Delhi Traffic Police Challan Check – E-Challan in Delhi

Delhi being the capital of the country and a business hub, is one of the most populated cities in India. With a large number of population commuting from one part of the city to another, the increasing number of vehicles running on the roads of Delhi throughout the day is apparent. With the increasing number of vehicles, the chances of road accidents has also rose to a great extent.

To control the rising number of accidents taking place on a daily basis, the Government of India has made a few alterations to the Motor vehicle Act, 1988, and the amended Act was applied and commenced from September 1, 2019. The changes in the Act are expected to reduce the rising number of accidental deaths, which was around 1680 in Delhi in the year 2019.

Though many states like Karnataka, Gujarat, and Kerala didn’t follow the amended rules thoroughly when they were put into effect. These state governments made few changes in the Act as they were of the view that the revised rates of the e challan status were too high for common people of the middle and lower-middle category to afford. However, the NCT of Delhi didn’t amend the rates in the revised challan and implemented them alike.

Further, Delhi being the national capital, has always stayed ahead of other states in every aspect when it comes to the introduction of a new product, expertise, and so on. For better handling of traffic, the Government has installed cameras and speed sensors on different traffic signals and across roads within the city. It was done to make it easy for Delhi traffic police to handle traffic from their control room, thereby introducing the trend of raising Delhi traffic challan or e-challan.

Stand of Delhites on Challan rate hikes

The changes made in the Motor Vehicle Act, 1988 were executed by the Government of India from September 1, 2019 after it was passed by the parliament. The implementation of the new Act made the vehicle owners of Delhi all the more alert. They became responsive in terms of adhering to traffic rules. Moreover, the people driving a vehicle in Delhi now know that if they are caught without their driving license, a third-party insurance, or without a no pollution record, they will have to pay e challan in Delhi. Moreover, they also need to maintain the registration certificate with their documents. If you are caught without any of these papers mentioned in the modified Traffic Act, the Delhi traffic police can levy challan on you.
