Mumbai police are always in the news for their inventive method of keeping a check on crime. This time, they are in news for collecting a record ₹139 crores from traffic rules violators in 2018.

The amount collected in the previous year for the offense was ₹8.6 crores. The new system of E-challan is being credited for this achievement. “This technology-whereby an officer can simply issue an ‘e-challan’ from his mobile phone – has not only reduced corruption on the road but resulted in a massive collection of fines for the government coffers”-says RTI activist
Jeetendra Ghadge (as told to IANS).

According to the RTI, the number of drinking and driving cases has also reduced by a lot in the last three years. From 20,768 in 2016 to 11,711 in 2018, the figures speak for themselves. While 1,854 teachers were involved in such cases, the number was 367 for women at the same time duration.

From 2015 to 2019, there were a total of 77,455 in such instances. But licenses of only around 14% of the total offenders were suspended, according to the RTI figures.
