In an effort to add one more option for contactless enforcement, the Bengaluru Traffic Police have enabled payment of fine amount using Paytm.
Bengaluru Police Commissioner Kamal Pant launched the service on July 5.
This, according to Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic) B.R. Ravikanthe Gowda, will provide one more hassle-free and fast payment option for motorists.
Earlier, there were options to pay traffic fines through Bangalore-one, BTP website and PDA machines. However, as the Paytm option is already in use in other States, the BTP decided to introduce the option in Bengaluru.
Paytm has tied up with the traffic police to offer the payment option free of cost .
The technology upgrade was done by Tele Brahma services, a city-based IT company, for the police.
