The 300 e-challan system units worth Rs 2.83 crore would be issued to Inspectors and Sub Inspectors who regulate traffic in the city.
"With this e challan system, traffic violators can be spot fined and be monitored. We will co ordinate with banks soon to make way for credit card payments in this system," J K Tripathy, Commissioner of Police told reporters here.
The Chief Minister also inaugurated a portable solar traffic signal system. This mobile unit can be placed when the regular traffic signal system fails due to power cut or can be placed during visits of VIPs to a place. These units also have rechargeable batteries.
Chennai City Traffic Police has purchased 20 such mobile signal units at a cost of Rs 26 lakh.
