Tripura Virtual Court Inaugurates First Traffic e-challan Cases

Guwahati: The Chief Justice of the Tripura High Court launched the state’s first virtual court for traffic e-challan matters on Wednesday.

The inaugural function was attended by Justice S Talapatra, Justice T Amarnath Goud, Justice Arindam Lodh, Justice SG Chottapadhyay, and prominent state government officials.

While addressing at the event, Justice Mohanty said, “Today is yet another red-letter day for the High Court of Tripura as virtual court for traffic e-challan matters has come up. This eliminates the necessity for litigants to appear in court to pay fines.”

“When it comes to offering amenities to litigants, Tripura is one of the top states in the country. “I praised Justice Talapatra for his tremendous work in building several judicial facilities under the guidance of the Supreme Court’s e-court committee,” Mohanty said.

Justice Mohanty further praised the state administration for providing the High Court with unwavering assistance. Meanwhile, Justice Talapatra asked the state administration to make every effort to popularise the virtual court for e-challan cases during his speech at the event.

The Judicial Magistrate, First Class, Agartala has been assigned as the virtual court for traffic e-challan matters.

“If someone breaks a traffic rule, the traffic police will issue a challan to the offender.” It will be electronically registered with the authorised virtual court. If the violator(s) wishes to pay a fine, he or she will do so through any online payment method,” said Shubadip Saha, the High Court’s Deputy Registrar.

Agartala is the second city in the Northeast after Guwahati to implement e-challan cases. The traffic police in Agartala register roughly 7,000 to 7,500 traffic violation complaints in a month.
