Do you know what one means by a challan? You must pay a penalty if you do not follow the traffic norms. There was a time when the challan was set up manually. However, times have changed, and now there is an E Challan. This helps one maintain transparency and pay the rates easily.
One big reason people often end up paying a hefty fine is that it encourages them to be more responsible and ultimately decreases the number of accidents on the road.
Interestingly, the rates of these fines can vary between different states, primarily because each state government has its policies in place.
