More than 4.3 Million digital challans worth around PKR 1.75 Billion have been issued since April last year via Digital Warden App, developed by Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) for the City Traffic Police.
The citizens in various districts of Punjab have been fined for not wearing helmets, driving one-way or wrong parking. This emerged during a progress review meeting chaired by PITB Chairman Faisal Yousaf. PITB Additional Director General (ADG) Syed Qasim Ifzal and other senior officials were also present in the meeting.
On this occasion, PITB Chairman Faisal Yousaf said that the Digital Warden App has not only made it possible to eliminate complaints of fake and bogus challans but has also helped in achieving transparency.
The chair went on to say that the City Traffic Police saved more than PKR 90 Million in lieu of printing of challan books.
