Have you ever been fined for violating a traffic rule in Nepal? If you have then you might have found paying traffic fines difficult.
Before, the fine payer must deposit the amount in the bank recommended by the traffic department. The hassle doesn’t end here, the deposit slip must be submitted to the Metropolitan traffic police department. Then only the fine payer will receive their document. As a result, the fine payer has to spend a lot of time and hassle in queuing at the bank.
But now no need to bother, you can pay the traffic fine online directly from your mobile phone. When paying online, the revenue from the fine will be credited directly to the government revenue account.
The online payment service has been launched by the Metropolitan Traffic Police with the development of TVRS (Traffic Violation Record System) software so that the fines for violating traffic rules can be paid online. For now the service is available from eSewa and ConnectIPS only.
This service will be expanded in the coming days. Hence the fine payer can make payments through internet banking and other affiliated PSPs / wallets of banks and financial institutions affiliated to NCHL.
For online payment, the agreement was signed by Senior Superintendent of Police Janak Bhattarai on behalf of the Metropolitan Traffic Police with Roshan Lamichhane and Nileshman Singh Pradhan, Chief Operating Officer of eSewa and Nepal Clearing House Limited (NCHL) respectively on Wednesday.
The use of technology and the facility of online payment is expected to make the management of vehicles more efficient. Also, more work can be done with less manpower.
