With a view to promote cashless economy and make ease for the traffic violators to pay the fine, Mysuru City Police has introduced the option of paying traffic fines online.
This move has also come as a relief for traffic police personnel collecting fines in city who have been facing difficulty in tendering change for Rs 2,000 notes given by traffic violators.
The traffic violators were earlier given the option to pay their penalties at five traffic police stations in the city or at the Traffic Automation Enforcement Centre in Commissioner’s office or to traffic inspectors equipped with blackberries. Now, the recent option of paying penalties online will facilitate the violators to pay fines by just logging on to the Karnataka one portal .
The violator can login to the select services in the Karnataka One portal and choose Mysore City and click payment of traffic violation fine link to pay.
However, the violators need to first register themselves to use the service and can find the link on the Mysuru City police webpage .On an average, Mysuru Traffic Police issue over 500 violation notices and fines collected range anywhere between Rs 1.5 lakh and Rs 2 lakh every month and if a traffic violator has no money to pay fine when he is caught by the cops, he will be served notice which can be paid online later.
The introduction of online payment system will also help the buyers of used vehicles to check the vehicle history of violations and outstanding fines.
