The CCPO of Lahore, Zulfiqar Hameed, had announced recently that citizens will be able to pay all their traffic challans online as the new portal launches. The decision came in light of providing convenience to the people as corona-virus continues to bar complete movement of people. Zulfiqar Hameed said that keeping in view social distancing, the method of electronic challan payment was given a “Go Ahead”.
CTO briefed about the working of the newly developed system, adding that the citizens can now pay their challans via ATMs and online banking.
The Police Chief said that in the first phase, the system will be used for three traffic sections in Lahore, however, it will later be implemented throughout the provincial capital.
Furthermore electronic e-payment would eliminate the tout mafia and facilitate data collection.
Citizens of Lahore would be able to check their E-challans online now.
How to check the E-challan?
First and foremost, after opening echallan.psca.gop.pk and entering CNIC number on which the vehicle is registered and enter the vehicle registry number on E-challan Portal and if the screen is showing “No Record Found’’, it means you added the wrong information or you have not been fined.
But if you are fined, you will get the E-challan on your screen. Print the E-challan.
How to pay your E-challan?
One of the two options can be used:
1. If the hard copy of the E-challan is available then citizens of Lahore can pay the E-challan in the National Bank of Punjab or the NBP (National Bank of Pakistan).
2. Payment through ATM card is a very feasible and available option.
The PSCA Spokesman also said that E-Challan System will be launched in other Cities as well.
