The central government has taken a host of measures in the past couple of years to improve the road infrastructure in India. Apart from improving connectivity and constructing more national highways and expressways across the country, the government has also implemented the new Motor Vehicles Act in India. This rule levies heavy penalties for violating traffic rules. Additionally, the government has also installed cameras and other sensors on the road making it easier for authorities to fine people for violating the rules.

While the entire system of fining drivers and paying challans has been brought online for easy payments, there are situations when drivers are not information about the traffic challan. As a result, these challans remain unpaid, which can levy more fines and even imprisonment. For times like these, the government has also devised an easy way using which drivers can check if they have been fined. They can also pay fines using a similar technique.

So here is a step-by-step guide of how you can check if you have been fined and pay the traffic challan thereafter.
