Uttar Pradesh is the country's most populous state. As a result, traffic in UP's cities and towns is congested, making it harder to regulate. By establishing an effective and transparent electronic challan system, the State Government has attempted to optimize its traffic control procedure.
The traffic police challan was intended to ensure that drivers do not violate any rules while also ensuring the protection of other drivers on the road.UP e-challan is issued digitally and served using the Electronic Challan System. The Uttar Pradesh government introduced UP challan online with the intent of enhancing services and ensuring accountability.
Traffic offenders can now settle e-challans online or offline. In addition, e-challan creates a real- time entry of the offence in the traffic police server located in the traffic police control room.
One must be familiar with the traffic rules and penalties in order to avoid being penalized with a UP e-challan. The State Government has increased traffic fines for various offences in accordance with revisions to the Motor Vehicle Act of 2019. Find the details in the table below.
