A number of 13 million e-Challan have been issued through Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB)’s e-Ticketing system developed for National Highway and Motorway Police (NHMP) collecting a sum of Rs. 4.4 billion, which has improved the efficiency of the challan process and facilitated the riders by paying their fines at the spot without wasting their time to deposit the fine at banks or to visit traffic office to get their documents.
Dr. Umar Saif founding Vice Chancellor of Information Technology University (ITU) the Punjab and Chairman PITB said while chairing a meeting here today.
He said that the result-oriented system developed through technology by the PITB has shown acceptance by the public at large and it has established transparency in the traffic ticketing process as well as it has eliminated the chances of bribe and corruption.
The e-challan system was now operational across Pakistan and being implemented by the NHMP after necessary training of the respective officials at PITB, he added.
The technology-oriented device was developed in June 2015 and its first trial was conducted in August 2015 and after further necessary improvements in the system now it is operative all over the country.
“The system data also collects details of the vehicles, accidents, date of the incident, habitual violators, real-time location of the time stamp, accident analysis, causes and the person involved, which is a big leap ahead through technology”, said Abbass Ahsan DIG while elucidating the salient features of the system.
