It’s always good to appreciate and talk about your country in a respectable and appreciable manner. Instead of whining and highlighting negative issues and presenting Pakistan as the worst nation we decided to talk about the notable topics of our beloved country. In the previous year, new E-Challan system was tested in major cities of Pakistan including Multan and Lahore.
Recently, Islamabad Traffic Police initiated a new E-Challan system in collaboration with JS bank and NBP (National Bank of Pakistan). The collaboration was done last week in Islamabad with an aim to make a flawless and fast system in order to maintain an effective process for the serving police and the traffic violators.
What’s the catch?
With this latest technology of E-Challan system, residents – especially traffic violators of Islamabad will be able to pay their fine on the spot instead of going to the Challan office. This will also save their time and allow them to pay their fines instantly instead of going to the specified bank and waiting in long Challan fee lanes. The initiative is taken with an aim to bring an effective and systematic approach and to eliminate the small level bribing concept as well.
How does it work?
Moving further, with the advent of this new E-Challan digital ticketing system traffic wardens will be able to send a violation challan on the mobile number of the violator through their own official mobile numbers right at the violation spot. The traffic violators will receive an instant message on their cellphones with an amount of challan with details for which they have been charged. The violator will then have the option to pay instantly (within 30 seconds – 1 minute) through JS Mobile Wallet App. Once the payment is released from the violators end, the traffic warden will receive a notification on his mobile regarding the confirmation of the challan payment. Once received, Traffic wardens will be obliged by law to return all the confiscated documents of the accused traffic rules violator.
“We are moving aggressively towards the vision of digital policing in Islamabad to ensure public convenience and raising our standards at international level. This is a massive step towards digital policing in Islamabad as it offers a suite of services in addition to digital challan generation and fee collection system.” – Sultan Azam Temuri- Islamabad IG
Currently, E-Challan system of digital ticketing is being tested in major areas of Islamabad including Zero Point, F-8 Chowk, Melody Chowk, Radio Pakistan Chowk and Secretariat Chowk and Aabpara Chowk.
