Uttar Pradesh govt considering setting up e-courts to deal with traffic violators

The step will ease the burden and work load on courts and disposal of e-challans is done faster.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has asked his administration to work on setting up e-courts for faster disposal of e-challans issued over traffic rule violation. These cases of e-challans are piling up at regular courts and increasing the work load, reports say. 

Additional Chief Secretary, Home, Awanish Kumar Awasthi and Principal Secretary, Law, held a meeting on Wednesday to chalk out the details on setting up e-courts so as to bring a uniformity in e-challan system across the state. 

Between January 7, 2019 and December 31, 2020, as many as 1.3 crore e-challans were issued in Uttar Pradesh. Many of these e-challans were disposed of after the violators paid the fines. However, some were sent to the court for further action. As many as 36 lakh e-challans are currently pending in courts. 

The UP Chief Minister has instructed his administration to draw up an action plan for faster disposal of e-challans so that courts are not burdened. Currently, in Varanasi and Faizabad, e-challans are being sent to court through National Informatics Centre (NIC). Similarly, e-mapping is also carried out in Prayagraj by traffic directorate through NIC. The officials say that these system should be studied and implemented across the state for brining in ease and uniformity.
