The Chief Traffic Officer (CTO) of Lahore, Muntazir Mehdi, has issued an order to launch a strict operation against those vehicle owners who have failed to pay their e-challans.
After careful consideration, the Chief Technology Officer has given the go-ahead for the operation to confiscate vehicles of drivers who have failed to pay their E-challans. Seventeen special teams have been formed and 34 traffic wardens have been placed at strategic locations around the city in order to apprehend these defaulters. These teams can be found at popular public areas such as Mall Road, Jail Road, Canal Road, Ferozepur Road, Main Boulevard Gulberg, Mozang, and Mughalpura, among others.
The department has also ordered patrolling officers and sector in-charges to take action against the suspected individuals. The police department and Punjab Safe City Authority will both check the vehicles on a daily basis.
The department will seize the documents and vehicles of e-challan defaulters until they submit the fee. Mehdi states that this step will improve the traffic system.
The general public can find out their challan status by texting their cars’ chassis number on 8815.
