Mumbai: Delhi traffic police is expected to obtain hand-held devices working on GPRS or CDMA technologies. The device is being procured to help policemen to get the past record of the driver and vehicle on the basis of vehicle number, name of the driver, parentage and driver's license details.

The department is analyzing an e-challaning system which would be able to print challans in English and Hindi, and forward it to courts. Each device will be capable of acting as a payment receiving station for any challan or notice generated by any other device and issue receipt.

It will help the challaning officer to know about the previous offences committed by the driver or pending challans on the vehicles. Moreover, the device will also enable the policemen to know whether the vehicle involved in a traffic rule violation is stolen, the previous history of vehicle or driver in accidents or whether any notice from traffic police is pending against the vehicle.

Earlier, the Delhi police had set up a state-of-the-art control room with multimedia to track PCR vans fitted with GPS devices. Besides this, police is also planning a Web portal for providing traffic related services to the general public and senior officers.
