The Punjab Safe Cities Authority (PSCA), in collaboration with the City Traffic Police (CTP), has introduced the E-Challan system in Lahore under the direction of the Lahore High Court (LHC). E-challan is an electronic traffic violation ticket system that is welcomed by many of the city’s citizens.
The new system identifies traffic law violations using advanced Automatic License Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras installed by PSCA on various streets in the city.
The e-Challan is sent to the address of the offenders registered with the vehicle ID, which contains the information about the violation of the traffic rules by the driver as well as the photo of the vehicle attached to the Challan paper.

But the biggest problem for people is that many offenders do not know they have been fined. Either they were registered from their previous place of residence against their vehicle ID and have not officially converted it into documents, or they have not received the e-Challan at their place of residence for technical reasons. So, if you’re not sure if you’ve broken the rules or have OCD, we’ve shared instructions on how to review and pay for your e-challan.
