KATHMANDU, Feb 3: The Metropolitan Police Traffic Division has started to receive a fine amount from traffic rule violators through an online payment method.
Organizing a program in the capital on Wednesday, the MTPD inaugurated the new online payment system, allowing rule violators to pay fines online.
“An integrated system has been developed between the Traffic Division Violation Record System, Revenue Management Information System, and payment systems. Through the system, the fine amount is deducted from the bank account of the traffic rule violators,” said Senior Superintendent of Police Janak Bhattarai, chief of the MTPD.
“The newly-introduced system will help in reducing big crowds in traffic offices. Once the fine amount is paid, rule violators should come to the traffic police office to collect their documents,” said Bhattarai, adding that the rule violators do not have to queue up at banks to pay the fine amount now onwards.
Starting Wednesday, traffic rule violators can pay the fine amount through Esewa and IPS Connect. “The Division is also initiating talks with other digital service providers to introduce ‘Traffic Police Fine Payment’ option in their platforms,” he said.
With the introduction of new service, ‘Traffic Police Fine Payment’ option can be found in Esewa and IPS Connect through which violators can pay the fine amount.
“Violators have to login to their Esewa or IPS Connect account, and should enter the number of the slip provided by traffic police. After paying the amount, they can visit the respective traffic police office to collect their documents,” said Superintendent of Police Shyam Krishna Adhikari, spokesperson for the division.
