TS-Challan

Traffic is part of our life now. We are used to facing traffic whether one owns a vehicle or not. Not only this, now we have become habitual to the traffic signals, traffic police, the rules, and regulations while driving. Even the children are taught in early schooling that what are the basic and key rules and regulations while walking on the street or crossing the street. All this has made the job of traffic police complicated and difficult. Hence, E-Challan came into being. E-Challan is the electronic challan that is generated with the help of cameras installed on the streets that captures the traffic disrupter and catches the defaulter with much ease as compared to traffic police themselves. E-Challan is easy to issue and pay as well. The defaulters can pay online with the help of a website and check the status of their Challan with the same. Let us know more about the E-Challan status check and payment in Telangana.

How does Telangana State Police integrated E-Challan System work?

The integrated E-Challan system was introduced by Telangana State Police and it makes it convenient for others to pay fines. According to this system, those who have to pay a fine need not stand in long queues at the e-Seva centre, they can just swipe a card to pay the desirable amount with the help of Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) machines which are there with Traffic police. As per the integrated E-Challan system, the traffic police launched excellent PDAs which are inbuild with GPRS connectivity and an attached card reader. With the help of this, the violator can pay instantly for the Challan by their debit/credit cards. The PDAs have access to the traffic police central server and help in generating on-the-spot challan and gives details about the previous challans of the violator as well. The violator is given receipt after the fine is received.
