New Delhi: To facilitate online payments of traffic challans, Delhi’s first ‘virtual court’ has been launched at Tiz Hazari courts.

The Delhi District Courts under the aegis of the E-Committee, Supreme Court of India launched the virtual court’s web portal for online payment of traffic challans.

The portal will cater to traffic challans digitally generated by the Delhi Traffic Police via the E-Challan application developed by the NIC.

The portal was inaugurated by former Supreme Court justice Madan B Lokur and chief justice of Delhi High Court justice DN Patel.

“All traffic challans except those where the vehicle is impounded can be disposed of by making online payment at the portal. An officer of the rank of Metropolitan Magistrate presides over the virtual court,” the Delhi High Court said in a statement.

The digital challans generated through the e-challan application will be sent in digital form to the court and all the challans for the given day will reflect in the dash board of the virtual court Judge.

The court as per section 208 of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 will issue summons to the violator via mobile phone and email id of the violator. The message will contain a web link which on clicking will redirect the violator to the virtual court web portal. Thereafter the violator may make payment of the traffic challan online or may opt to contest the challan as per law, the statement said.

In collaboration with the State Bank of India, a payment gateway had been provided for online payment. The violator will be able to make online payment via credit card, debit card and/or online banking mechanism. Upon payment of the fine, an acknowledgement will be generated showing disposal of challan and the transaction number.

Ruchi Aggarwal Asrani, Metropolitan Magistrate, will preside over the virtual court.

Virtual court is big milestone of the e-courts project.

Prior to the launch of the virtual court, the Delhi District Courts have launched the e-filing in arbitration matters.
