The financial capital and city of dreams Mumbai is one of the busiest cities in India. People from all over the country come here to fulfil their dreams. More people mean more vehicles, and more vehicles mean more traffic. That is why the city needs to follow strict traffic rules. It not only helps in managing traffic on roads systematically, but also reduces the risk of accidents, and protects from any mishap by making the drivers aware of the obstacles, and correct direction.
Any violation of the traffic rules is a legal crime and can lead to hefty traffic fines as well as imprisonment in Mumbai. Today, these fines are levied in the form of an e-challan. You can pay it digitally through UPI, debit cards, credit cards, online wallets, net banking, etc.
