Kolkata, Jul 19 (PTI) The Kolkata Traffic Police has

decided to issue e-challan to violators of rules and a

software will start functioning on a pilot basis in this

regard from Tuesday, an official said.

The system will gradually cover the entire city, Joint

Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Santosh Pandey said on

Monday.

"The software was developed by the National

Informatics Centre (NIC). Cases registered through it will be

shown in the database throughout the country. Car documents

can be digitally seized and suspended," he said.

The existing traffic guard concept will also be

replaced with traffic circles, a source in the department

said.

"The existing traffic beat concept is not available in

the e-Challan application. Now, the exact location of a

traffic violation will be available using a GPS-based

mechanism," the source said.

It is an android smartphone-based application for an

on-road officer.

It will have a web-based traffic case disposal module

for the guard cashier and a web-based payment module for the

public. There will be a state-wide single virtual e-court

option as approved by the Supreme Court," he added.

According to the officer, no physical documents

related to the vehicles will be seized.

"Through this software, an officer can digitally lock

documents like driving license, registration certificate,

pollution certificate, insurance document," he said. PTI SCH
