The Dehradun administration announced that it would impose a fine of Rs 5,000 on burning plastic or garbage in the open areas, in order to improve the air quality. It has also been ordered by the District Magistrate to the Municipal Corporations and concerned authorities to make challan against those who don't follow the rules. "I've directed for strict action," R Rajesh Kumar, District Magistrate, told to ANI.
Amending its six-year-old e-challan policy rules, Mumbai traffic police has mandated the violators to pay fines in cash or card at the police chowkis. Reportedly, Mumbai alone owes a due of challans worth 280 crores, out of 602 crores in the state. "The recovery rate of fines were faster in the cash approach, as compared to the cashless or e-challans," said Superintendent Sunita Salunkhe.
