e-Challan- the new IT-based traffic control for India

For the first time in India, Andhra Pradesh Police introduced 'e-Challan', an IT-based traffic control and monitoring system, in Visakhapatnam city in southern India on a pilot-basis.

Under this system, challans will be issued to offenders on the spot by using hand-held terminals and the data will be transferred to computer servers of Police and Road Transport Departments. These devices have the facility for swiping credit/debit cards to pay the penalties.
