Chennai, May 26:
Fines imposed by the police department for traffic violations can be paid online from today, fines generated digitally by the State Traffic Police Control Unit through the e-challan system can be paid directly on the Virtual Court web portal.
Under the current system, violators paid fines issued by the traffic police department at the nearest post office through e-challans generated. However, from now, fines for traffic violations including helmet-less travel, overspeeding, red light-jumping, not wearing seat belts and overload of vehicles can be paid through a website. According to a senior official from the Madras High Court, “The Virtual Court was created to eliminate the presence of the litigant or lawyer in court and for adjudication of the case online.”
