Delhi Police to Issue e-Challans

by CXOtoday Staff    Dec 29, 2008

The traffic wing of Delhi police is in the process of procuring hand-held devices working on GPRS or CDMA technologies. The devise will be able to retrieve data relating to previous offences committed by the driver or the vehicle from its database.

The department is scouting an e-challaning system which would be able to print challans in English and Hindi, and forward it to courts. Each device will be capable of acting as a payment receiving station for any challan or notice generated by any other device and issue receipt.

The device is being procured to help policemen to get the past record of the driver and vehicle on the basis of vehicle number, name of the driver, parentage and driver s licence details.

It will help the challaning officer to know about the previous offences committed by the driver or pending challans on the vehicles. The device will also enable the policemen to know whether the vehicle involved in a traffic rule violation is stolen, the previous history of vehicle or driver in accidents or whether any notice from traffic police is pending against the vehicle.

It may be recalled that the Delhi police has set up a state-of-the-art control room with multi media to track PCR vans fittled with GPS devices.

Besides this, police is also planning a Web portal for providing traffic related services to the general public and senior officers.
