Jalandhar, December 1
In another attempt to bring transparency in the working of the traffic police and allowing citizens to approach with complaints and grievances, Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal launched a website of Jalandhar (City) Traffic Police here today.
With the launch of the website www.jalandhartrafficpolice.com, the database of traffic violators will be a click away. This will not only ease getting access to records of violations but also help in bridling the violators.
Badal said the administrative reforms would be completely enforced from April 1, 2011 to bring transparency in the system besides overcoming the inadequacy to facilitate people of the state in a much better way.
He said this website has several interactive features like provision for citizens to make online suggestions, feedbacks and complaints, which could be duly registered and responded within a week. Badal said obtaining national permit was a cumbersome as well as costly process with transporters being forced to shell out Rs 3,000 per state every year for the permit.
He said he moved with the principal of 'one country one permit' and this national permit at a merge cost of Rs 15,000 would give freedom to the truck operator to operate his truck from Kashmir to Kanyakumari without any additional tax. The minister also launched a unique SMS service for the truck operators. This 24X7 SMS service would come to the aid of any truck operator who has been illegally stopped by any state authority. Police Commissioner Gaurav Yadav said the website with a database of over 70,000 entries contains details of challans issued by the Jalandhar (City) Police since April 2010.
The website is packed with information about the organisation and structure of the Jalandhar Police, contract numbers of traffic police personnel, traffic rules and regulations, roads marks and road signs, accidents and first aid information, emergency contact numbers, details of traffic marshals including their contact numbers and the activities of the traffic education cell.

If your vehicle is challaned for a traffic violation, you need not wait for weeks for compounding it from now onwards. The computerised traffic offences compounding branch of the Jalandhar Police Commissionerate, set up at traffic police thana, near the Police Lines here, makes the job simple for you.
DGP P.S. Gill formally inaugurated the traffic offences compounding branch today. He also handed over badges to volunteers under the traffic marshal scheme.
The challans can be paid at the single-windowed compounding branch the same day.
A new software named "NXT Traffic challan Pro" has been set up at the branch which would help create a data bank of all traffic offenders, enable searches for subsequent offenders for enhanced fines and offer speedy resolution of traffic challans for the convenience of citizens.
Gill also inaugurated the arms licensing and registration branch which has been entrusted with the functions of issue of new arms licences, renewal of arms licences, issuance of duplicate licences, endorsements of weapons on licences, issue of transport licences, inheritance of licences, issue of NOCs to licensees, change of address of licensees, registration of outside licences and creation of master database of earlier issued licences.
The branch is headed by an officer of the rank of inspector with eight supporting police personnel working under the supervision of the ADCP (HQ) and the DCP
