Thiruvananthapuram: Fine for traffic offences can be paid online from now on.
Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan will inaugurate the e-challan system on Tuesday via video-conferencing. DGP Loknath Behera, ADGP Manoj Abraham and IG G Lakshman will also be present.
In the e-challan system, all details would be available on the officials’ gadget by entering the driving licence number or vehicle number. If a traffic violation has been caught, the driver or vehicle owner can pay the fine through credit/debit cards or internet banking, and get the receipt.
Cases of those, who do not want to pay the fine, would be transferred to the virtual court.
The e-challan system will be first implemented in Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, Ernakulam, Thrissur, and Kozhikode towns. The National Informatics Centre developed the software for this.
