Noida ups ante against traffic violators; e-challan to reach home soon
Noida traffic police has introduced a mobile app based electronic challan system to improve the city’s existing traffic management system and policemen have been provided one hundred and fifty three mobile phones in this regard.
The app will help issuance of challans and recovery of penalty after any violator is caught breaking traffic rules in the city. Moreover, two kinds of challans would be generated by the police – contact and non-contact challan.
As far as the contact challan is concerned, it will be issued on the spot and the offender will have to pay an instant fine. On the other hand, the non-contact challan will be levied on vehicles which don't stop after violating traffic rules. The app will click pictures and obtain complete information about such vehicles and the police will approach the owners for payment of the challan.
The traffic policemen have already received three months training regarding this purpose. However, they are being provided extra training on 18th and 19th April.
Anil Kumar Jha, SP traffic Noida, said that the electronic challan system has been introduced by UP’s DGP, OP Singh. He said that Noida witnesses huge traffic violations and thus the e-challan system will now be implemented all over the city.
He further added that until now, this system used to function only on the Noida-Greater Noida expressway. Traffic violators were recognised through the footage collected by cameras installed on the highway and challan was sent to their homes.
He also said that the traffic police is working on the process of sending e-challan to people’s homes now. Moreover, he added that soon a process will be developed where the e-challan will reach traffic violators’ address even before they set foot in their homes.
However, on the one hand, Noida traffic police is talking about smart policing and issuance of electronic challans to maintain traffic in the city. On the other hand, the video shows an auto carrying a huge load and blocking a busy road. Such autos create massive traffic jams in the city. Does the police have any solution regarding this problem?
