Haryana has undertaken a number of initiatives to facilitate transport enforcement in the state digitally that is spelling ease and comfort for people as well as streamlining the system. One of these is e-Challan, a complete digital solution for transport enforcement and traffic police that is integrated with Vahan and Sarathi applications. This has brought about complete transparency as it connects key stakeholders through a common system besides ensuring data integrity as it limits the role of manual entries and their subsequent tampering.
The e-challan initiative, which was launched in the state in December 2017, has provided ease of operations, efficient monitoring through digitisation of records and has enhanced the visibility of offenders besides enabling better traffic management.
One of the major benefits is that it helps trace habitual offenders as the challan gets fed into the national database and the offender’s history can be traced back not just in Haryana but in any state across the country.
Another initiative that has been taken is launch of m- Parivahan, another citizen centric app that facilitates access to transport related services. The app provides for virtual driving license and registration certificate through back end connection to Transport National Register. If a vehicle number is entered through the app, it gives full details of the car and the owner including his driving license and registration certificate.
