E-CHALLAN: Layyah District Police Officer Nida Chattah has started e-challan payment for traffic violations in Layyah.
Under the new system, the citizens will be able to avail many facilities, such as receiving the ticket detail through SMS and payment of the fine through online banking system.
She said the system would eliminate bribery for a violation of the law, as the driver will receive a message confirming the challan and fine payment.
