This UP government decision will greatly relieve the public.

Lakhs of car owners, especially those penalized with traffic violations, applauded CM Yogi Adityanath’s move. After receiving the court’s list, the government has instructed all divisional transport offices to remove pending challans from the e-challan portal,” the official statement said.

In accordance with Uttar Pradesh Ordinance No. 2 of June 2023, the transport commissioner cancelled previous, outstanding challans.

Noida farmers protested for the cancellation of such challans. “This allows Uttar Pradesh to waive crores of challans,” the statement said.

If they believed a challan was wrong, drivers may quickly protest on the internet. A smartphone notification is sent when a car is challaned.

Drivers shouldn’t worry once previous challans are canceled. They may submit traffic tickets online from home. “Only the vehicle number is needed to get detailed information on the UP Traffic Police website,” the statement said.
