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.
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.
Electronic challan or e-challan as it is commonly known is an online Delhi traffic challan issued when a vehicle driver is caught on camera for violating any traffic rules. The defaulter who gets a challan has to pay the fine online.
To issue a Delhi traffic challan, the government has installed speed sensors and cameras on most roads and important traffic signals. The live feed of such cameras reach the monitors of Delhi traffic police control room and they issue challans against the defaulters violating any traffic rules. The cameras basically notes the vehicle number from the number plates and the traffic control department can seek the address of the vehicle owner from their registration number. Once they find the details, they send the e-challan on the respective email ids of defaulters. As per rule, the defaulter has to pay back the challan within 60 days of its issue date.
The concept of e-Challan was initiated by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways of India.
When a defaulter of a traffic rule is caught on camera, he/she is sent the e-challan through e-mail or through a call on his/her registered phone number. Moreover, a hard copy is also sent to the permanent residence address of the defaulter and he/she was expected to pay the challan within 60 days.
