Vadodara is a bustling city with a population of more than 2 million and growing. With a persistent increase in vehicles, the traffic police department has taken several initiatives to manage traffic congestion. It includes introducing CCTV monitoring and e-challan to move away from traditional ways of issuing and paying challans.
Digitalization has made it possible to deal with traffic offenses more fairly, quickly, and concisely. E-Challan Vadodara is a paperless challan issued when someone is caught violating the law in surveillance cameras. It also aims to eliminate challan issued in error. It also negates the presence of a police officer for giving challan to the offender as the entire process is handled digitally and in real-time.
The Vadodara traffic police strictly enforce the state government's traffic fines. Here are some of the most prevalent offenses that might result in e-challans:
