Chennai city police can no longer collect spot fine, only online payment

With an aim to ensure more transparency and to curb corruption, there has been passed a new rule under which the traffic police cannot spot fines and can only ask for online payment. All the payments for the breach of any kind of traffic rules should be made digital, either through debit or credit cards, Paytm or any other authorised digital wallet.

The additional commissioner of Police addressed the public not to pay cash to the cops and make digital transactions only in case of need. The digital payments were launched as a pilot project last year in July and a full-fledged digitisation began on Thursday only.

For the ones, who still wish to spot a cash payment will have to pay it at their nearest post office or any e-seva centre within 48 hours. If in case the payment is not made within the stipulated time, the defaulter will have to pay a fine.

The digital payment will be accepted through POS machines like we do in any restaurant or shopping centre.
