According to the official sources, Punjab’s traffic police wardens will start to issue e-challans from 23rd March, and the manual challan system will no longer be used.
The e-challan system will be adopted in Punjab not only to make the traffic police system more transparent, but it will also help to remove corruption, and allow all challan data to be unified.
However, smart printers will soon be handed to traffic wardens to replace the outdated challan books.
According to the traffic officials, in the event of traffic law infractions across Punjab, including Lahore, traffic wardens would produce slips using a smartphone app and print them using smart printers using an internet system.
The e-challan will also include the challan officer’s name and beat, as well as all of the violator’s personal information.
