City Traffic Police (CTP) in collaboration with Punjab Safe Cities Authority (PSCA) under the directives of the Lahore High Court (LHC) has launched the E-Challan system in Lahore. E-Challan is an Electronic Traffic Violation Ticket system.
This system identifies the traffic violators with the help of Automatic Vehicle Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras, which are installed by Punjab Safe Cities Authority (PSCA) across different roads of the city, which has received a welcoming response from majority of citizens of the proviance.
The E-Challan is sent to the traffic violators’ address registered against their vehicle registration number, contains traffic violations information with picture of the vehicle posted on the challan paper.
One of the major problem which people are facing is that many of the violators remain unaware of the fact that they have been charged with a fine. Because either they had shifted from their previous residence registered against their vehicle IDs and haven’t officially changed it in the documents, or they do not receive the E-Challan at their residence due to some technical issues. So, in case if you are not sure that you have violated any rule or having an OCD, you can check and pay your E-Challan online.
How to check E-Challan online:
- Visit the PSCA website
- In “Search E-Challan By Vehicle Numeber and CNIC” section input your Vehicle Number and CNIC as per instruction.
- By searching the details you will find either you are fined or not. You can also download / print the E-Challan document.
How to pay your E-Challan:
You can pay your E-Challans by two ways.
- The First method is to pay your challan by the NBP’s ATM machines.
- The Second one is to pay your challan manually. Downloading and printing the E-Challan document from the PSCA website and submit it in the National Bank of Punjab (NBP) with the required amount.
The Punjab Safe Cities Authority (PSCA) is also working to develop a mobile app, to check and pay your E-challans.
The Electronic Ticketing Center (ETC) has issued over 75,000 e-challans since the launch of Electronic Challan on September 23. These 75,000 E-Challans have resulted in the addition of PKR 7 million to the national treasury so far.
