Introduction to e-challan status:
To make traffic services more proactive and tech-friendly, the Government of India introduced the concept of e-challan, making challan payment easier for citizens. A computer-based challan sent to traffic defaulters across India, an e-challan uses CCTVs to capture defaulters and charge them with a fine. Under the Motor Vehicles Act, if you don't adhere to the rules and regulations on the road, you will be charged with a fine.
There are multiple ways to check challan status and even make online payment of the fine. Continue reading to learn everything about the online challan status and how to make its payment.

What happens if you do not pay an e challan on time?
Paying challan is like tax payment. What happens when taxpayers try to evade income tax returns? The consequences would start with something as mild as the income tax department sending a warning notice and a penalty but would escalate to jail time quickly.
The consequences are much similar even when it comes to challan payment is not made in time. If you still do not clear your challan dues on time, and your online traffic challan status stands unpaid, officers from nodal branches can then suspend your driver's license!
So make sure you are up to date with your challan status inquiry for timely payment of your e-challan. Usually, the police department gives the defaulter 60 days to make the challan payment from the date of challan issuance.

Under the CIN-based view, Challan payers ought to keep in mind that once a challan is paid off, the authorized collecting bank branch or the Reserve Bank of India generates a Challan Identification Number (CIN).
- CIN is a 17-digit number consisting of 14 digits (Challan Tender Date and Serial No.) generated as CPIN while the remaining three digits are the BSR code i.e. the identification code for a bank. The CIN can be used to confirm the e-challan status with your bank, paid using a credit card/debit card, or through other modes of payment for e-challan.
