CARS24 is set to revolutionize the experience of vehicle owners across India with the launch of its innovative eChallan service, beginning today. This groundbreaking feature empowers private car owners to effortlessly review and resolve their outstanding traffic fines through the user-friendly CARS24 website and mobile application.
CARS24’s eChallan service simplifies the intricate process of managing traffic penalties across various state traffic departments. Vehicle owners can now input their car’s registration number, and CARS24 will promptly display all pending challans associated with their vehicles. This transparent and straightforward procedure puts the authority of handling fines back in the hands of car owners.
The introduction of this service represents a significant stride toward simplifying the task of clearing pending challans. This newly launched solution will benefit vehicle owners nationwide, providing a seamless, accessible, and convenient experience, particularly for those frequently traveling between states or embarking on cross-country road trips.
In today’s digital age, traffic eChallans have become a common occurrence, issued by Indian traffic authorities and cameras to notify individuals of traffic rule violations. Recent data from the road transport ministry, in response to AAP, Rajya Sabha MP Sushil Kumar Gupta’s inquiry, reveals that in 2022 alone, fines totaling INR 1372 Crore were imposed on drivers and vehicle owners.
According to the Indian Road Rules, which have been in effect since July 1989 and continue to be enforced today, all Indian drivers are expected to adhere to traffic regulations to ensure orderly traffic and road safety. Violating or ignoring these rules is considered a significant offense. The enforcement of these traffic laws significantly contributes to reducing road accidents by issuing challans to lawbreakers, motivating them to abide by the rules. To streamline the process of settling these eChallans, CARS24 now offers a user-friendly online platform.
Paying eChallans online not only offers convenience but also saves valuable time. Vehicle owners can choose from a variety of payment methods, including Net Banking, UPI, Credit Cards, Debit Cards, and digital wallets, making the payment process more accessible than ever. Additionally, opting for online payment provides enhanced transparency and furnishes an electronic payment record for future reference.
Gajendra Jangid, Co-Founder at CARS24, expressed his excitement about the launch, stating, “This eChallan service was born from our customers’ requests. We understand that dealing with challans can be quite a hassle. With this eChallan service, our primary goal is to simplify the process for vehicle owners while also lending a helping hand to the government in effective challan management. We’re confident that this initiative will truly empower vehicle owners and revolutionize how they handle their traffic challans.”
CARS24 offers a comprehensive solution for car owners through this service, providing instant access to challan details, unparalleled convenience with a user-friendly platform, and robust data encryption to ensure peace of mind during challan handling.
