Speaking on the occasion, the DGP complimented the J&K Traffic Police for launching the 100% e-challan system along with the Internet Payment Gateway (IPG) for payment of traffic fines in the UT. With this initiative, J&K Police will catch up with “One Nation One Challan System”, which will not only benefit the citizens but also the police, the DGP said.
He said that the traffic regulation itself is a big challenge especially on highways during winter however enforcement is equally important adding that both regulations & enforcement have to go hand in hand for better traffic management.

He said that e-challaning will reduce the chances of unnecessary altercation between violators & enforcers adding that it will ultimately help in maintaining road discipline. He said that it will enable us to assess the required data of any violator through Vahaan database.
