The Chief Justice of the High Court of Tripura inaugurated the first virtual court for traffic e-challan cases in the state on Wednesday.

Justice S Talapatra, Justice T Amarnath Goud, Justice Arindam Lodh, Justice SG Chottapadhyay and senior state government officials were present at the inaugural function.

During 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 cases has come up. With this, the litigants don’t need to come to the court to pay fine.”

Tripura is one of the leading states in the country when it comes to providing facilities to the litigants and I thanked Justice Talapatra for his good work in creating many judicial facilities under the guidance of the e-court committee of the Supreme Court”, Mohanty said.

Justice Mohanty also lauded the role of the state government for extending fullest support to the High Court. Meanwhile, Justice Talapatra while speaking at the programme encouraged the state government to make all out efforts to popularize the virtual court for e-challan cases.

Judicial Magistrate, First Class, Agartala has been designated as the virtual court for traffic e-challan cases.

“If any person violates traffic rules, the traffic police will generate a challan against the violator. It will be registered with the designated virtual court electronically. If violator(s) want to pay fine he or she will make it through any system of online payment”, said Shubadip Saha, the Deputy Registrar of the High Court.

Agartala is the second city in the Northeast after Guwahati where e-challan cases are made functional. In Agartala, around 7,000 to 7,500 traffic violation cases are registered with the traffic police in a month.
