Challans in Coimbatore
Being the second-largest city in the state of Tamil Nadu and one of the most developing cities in the country, Coimbatore entertains heavy traffic throughout. To regulate and ease the traffic, and to reduce the breaking of traffic rules, the government has implemented the traffic e-challan system.
The e-challan is a digitalized system introduced by the government to levy fines on traffic offenders in a systematic manner. The process of paying traffic fines was never this much easier. The Tamil Nadu police and the Coimbatore city police are responsible for collecting the fines.
You can check your traffic e-challans that are due, through the official websites of the state and city governments as well as the Park+ website/app.
