Mumbai Traffic Police (MTP) has launched a digital invoicing system against traffic violators. In Mumbai, the e-challan was started two years ago, since then, the police have collected fine worth ₹75 crore. Even now, about six lakh vehicles have a recovery of ₹35 lakh.

If one doesn't pay the challan even after the traffic invoice is issued, he can get a notice from the Mumbai Police. In Mumbai, the e-challan system has been implemented for two years, but the Traffic Police has failed to recover the invoices completely. Mumbai Police is taking these steps to manage non-payment where the Mumbai Traffic Police is sending notices to only the vehicle owners, who have above 50 invoices. Notably, out of the last year's online invoices, the police got very few recoveries and over 100 people have owed ₹50,000. There are three people who owed about ₹1 lakh and notice has been sent to such people who have defaulted.
