FreeCharge has announced its partnership with Mumbai Traffic Police for collecting traffic fines in a cashless manner.
Close to 500 e-challan devices have been rolled out to various traffic chowkies across the city at present. Once an offender is caught violating any rule, an e-challan will be generated against the vehicle registration number. The challan would also be sent to person’s mobile phone immediately.
