eChallan integration with Virtual Court in Delhi

From our Delhi correspondent Shri Sanjay Mendiratta
Delhi, August 2019: The Delhi district court launched a web portal to act as a virtual court where residents can make online payment against eChallans issued to them. With the online facility, launched at Tis Hazari courts, residents who have been issued eChallans for traffic violations will no longer have to visit the courts to deposit the fines

All challans, except those cases wherein the vehicle has been imponded, generated digitally by the Delhi traffic police can now be paid directly on the virtual court web portal- An officer of the rank of the metropolitan magistrate will preside over the virtual court.
The portal was inaguarated by former Supreme Court justice Madan B Lokur and Chief Justice of Delhi High Court, Justice DN Patel."The day is not far away when we can hear the cases without going to court. But before that, there is some basic work to be done which includes e-filing and arguing cases without the files,” Chief Justice Patel said at the inauguration.
“The virtual court is a big milestone in the e-courts project. With the growing density of traffic and an increasing number of violations it will help people in getting their fines disposed off sitting at home, without any requirement of visiting the courts,” a statement from the Delhi High Court read.

The challans generated through the eChallan application will be sent in a digital form to the court and all fines for a given day will reflect on the dashboard of the presiding officer of the virtual court.

The court will then issue summons to the violator via an SMS and mail which will contain a link to direct the violator to the virtual court web portal. Thereafter, the violator can pay the fine online or can opt to contest it as per law.
