Have you ever been issued an e-challan by the traffic police or RTO? If yes, you may have experienced the hassle of having to go to a physical location to pay for it. This can be a time-consuming and tedious process. Fortunately, now you can check and pay your e-challan online! This article will explain the simple steps involved in checking your E challan status online and paying it.

What is an e-challan?

An E challan or electronic challan can be defined as a type of penalty or fine amount that is created electronically and digitally. The goal of using e-challans is to eliminate reliance on physical documents. An E-challan can be obtained from an authorised digital source. Such e-challans improve the efficiency of the many operations that surround them. The MoRTH (Ministry of Road Transport & Highways) has begun implementing the e-challan idea. Online e-challan payment is now available in your city – save some time and money by paying your challans here instead of at a physical location. This e-challan is simply a challan that has been generated digitally. However, the advantages it provides to both drivers and traffic authorities are outstanding.
