With the world going online, be it ordering food or medicines, everything today can happen with a click of a button. Hence, the transport authorities have also updated their game and have started sending e-challans to traffic offenders on their registered mobile phone numbers.
But being online doesn’t mean there’s no room for error or it’s a foolproof system. There are going to be some mishaps. This one happened with a Twitter user who decided to share his plight on the micro-blogging site.
Tagging the Mumbai Police in his complaint tweet, the user named Joy Das wrote that he received a traffic challan months back.
What left him scratching his head was that the challan was issued for a bus whereas he doesn’t even own one. To top it all off, he recently received a legal notice asking him to pay the challan immediately or appear in court. Das was intrigued to know if he paid the Rs 2000 challan, would he be allowed to keep the bus?
“I had got a traffic Challan months back. The problem is I have a car and the challan was for a Dhinchak bus. I filed a grievance. Today got legal notice to pay the Challan immediately or appear in court. My question is if I pay the Rs 2000 Challan, can I keep the bus?”
After hearing his complaint, this is how people online reacted:
You need to have parking space for that 😁

Sounds like a good deal.
Bus for 2K.

Can I get a ride in that Dhinchak Bus?

Or else, tell them you are not paying fine and feel free to confiscate the bus.

I would like to give you a offer, I’d pay you ₹1,000 for 50% of the Equity of the bus. Since it’s within my expertise, I guess I can relate.
You have two minutes to give a counter offer.

Apparently, it’s not just him who faced such a tricky situation.
Happened to me too… I have a car, but got a challan for a scooter having my same number plate.
Good part is, that someone also paid the challan and I got the receipt.

@MumbaiPolice looks like there’s some scam… I also got a notice day before yesterday. I was also asked to pay or appear in court. I checked on sama website. The challan was there for wrong parking. The date of offence was jan 23, 2021. No pic attached. How m I supposed 2 rmmbr?

Same here , but didn’t paid will go lol adalat and asked about my bike image. Also my grievance rejected. They replied that I witness is a policeman and he is right. Fine is 1900/- . if you will get bus as a compensation than let me know I’ll do the same.

With so many people resonating with him, seems like the Mumbai traffic department has been facing a glitch that needs to be resolved ASAP or else they better be ready to give car owners free buses. LOL!
