Challans in Lucknow
In the majority of the states and union territories in India, traffic police authorities have implemented an electronic challan (e-Challan) system. Traffic in the city of Lucknow has increased in recent times. The State Government and local bodies are introducing many new traffic rules and penalties to control traffic violations.
In Lucknow, you can be penalised for traffic offences such as jumping a red light, overspeeding, not wearing a helmet, using a mobile phone while driving, or driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
A challan issued in your name will include details such as the offence committed, the amount of fine you are required to pay, and the deadline for payment. You can easily check your challan online across a variety of apps and websites.
