    How and why is the traffic e-challan generated?

    E-challan is issued against traffic violations by drivers. It is generated through the Electronic Challan System that encrypts all the data of violations and transfers it to a centralized server at the Traffic Control Room. The e-challan is generated along with photo/video evidence, captured through the CCTV cameras installed on the roads. The e-challan is sent to the violators through an SMS.
