Traffic wardens told to meet challan targets


Chief Traffic Officer (CTO) Malik Tanveer has handed over the target of issuing challans to the citizens over traffic violations to the traffic wardens on duty on various highways.
Reportedly, each traffic warden would issue 20 challans within eight hours otherwise they may face action over not achieving the targets set for them by the CTO.
According to police officials, the chief traffic officer had ordered his subordinate wardens to issue at least 20 challans per point within eight hours of duty. Those traffic wardens who failed to meet targets could face action by their senior police officer.
They will be supervised by the sector in-charge concerned and DSP. In order to fulfill the target assigned by the CTO, the traffic wardens were allegedly issuing challans to the citizens on various highways without any violation.
A traffic warden on the condition of anonymity said that it was necessary to complete the order of the senior officers. If the order was not completed, the seniors of the subordinate traffic wardens would take action and issue a show cause notice for not meeting the challan target, he added.
“That is why we are compelled to issue as many challans to commuters as we can.”
The chief traffic officer had pressured the traffic wardens revenue into an unnecessary duty of issuing challans for revenue instead of maintaining traffic flow, he alleged.
In this regard, when the CTO was contacted, he claimed that the traffic warden had been ordered to issue a challan for traffic violation within the eight hours duty of the wardens.
