New Delhi: Tightening the noose around commuters violating traffic rules, Delhi Police now will be seen with an electronic device rather the Challan Book.

With this e-challans, they will also be able to take photographs of the vehicles.

This hi-tech pilot project has already kicked off in RK Puram, Vasant Vihar and Kalyanpuri areas of Delhi. The fully-fledged e-challan system will be operation from March next year.

Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Satyendra Garg said, "The e-challan system will help us to maintain online records. With the help of this technology, we’ll be able to trace how many times a vehicle has violated the traffic rules.”

Under the new system, the guilty will have to pay double if caught again, and his driving licence may stand cancelled if he is found violating the traffic rules repeatedly.

Till date the Delhi traffic police issues challan manually, which will be executed in just 2 minutes with the help of this new electronic device and the pending challans would also be charged on the spot.
