What is a traffic challan?
A traffic challan is an official legal document issued to a motor vehicle driver on violating traffic rules and regulations. If you are issued a traffic challan in your name, you are liable to pay the fee depending upon the offense committed as per the Motor Vehicles Act.
Why do you get traffic challan?
There are rules which are required to be followed while driving on a road. When those rules are not adhered to or are violated by the driver of the vehicle, he gets charged with a penalty. Driving a car without seatbelt, over-speeding, or talking on the phone while driving are some examples of violating traffic rules. In severe cases, the offender may also get liable for punishment.
Visit the concerned website of your state’s transport department. You will find a section ‘e-challan payments’ or ‘traffic violation payment’. You will be allowed to choose if you want to pay for violation notices, parking charges, depending upon the type of traffic violation. Then you have to fill in your details and current outstanding amount. Further, make the payment using your credit/debit card or through paytm. Then you have to enter the Captcha Code in the space provided before clicking on ‘submit’. You will then be redirected to a safe page to make the payment.
If you prefer paying challan in an ordinary way, there are several ways by which you can pay offline. You can visit any traffic police station along with the letter for a traffic violation that you were received and then pay the necessary charges directly to the Inspector or Head Constable and take the receipt. If you are caught for any traffic violations on the road, you can pay the traffic police there and then as well.
You are required to pay e-challan within 60 days from the day the challan was issued. Nonpayment of challan will lead to challan being sent to the court.
