As per Milind Bharambe, the motorists and the traffic police constables engage in the heated arguments, which adversely affect the reputation of the traffic police personnel. He laid emphasis on the e-challans issued by the constables to penalize the motorists when they commit any offense. In order to eradicate evil corruption, the e-challan system was adopted.

It has been brought to the departments’ notice that in order to make quick bucks, the on-duty constable tends to ignore the violations.

The order states that the traffic police officer should not ask for motor insurance papers, PUC certificate or Green tax certificate apart from the other document issued by the Regional Transport Office.

The sources reveal that an individual disciplinary team has been established. In order to put the order into effect, the team will report directly to an assistant commissioner. As far as the disciplinary action against the traffic police is concerned, it is not fully established yet.
