Odisha Develops E-Detection Portal To Track Vehicles Plying Without Valid Documents

Cuttack: The Odisha government has developed an e-detection portal to keep a check on vehicles plying through national highways and state highways without valid documents.

“The objective of the portal is to collect data from various toll gates on national highways. In the first phase toll gates of NHAI have been integrated with the portal. Later, the data will be collected from mining and industrial areas as well. The data will be collected and analysed with details in Vahan portal and automatically challan will be generated for the vehicles plying without valid documents,” Joint Commissioner Transport (Technical) Dipti Ranjan Patra informed on Wednesday.

This initiative was taken up after sample data collected from toll gates situated on the national highways revealed that a substantial number of vehicles are plying without valid documents. The data will be collected in accordance with the data fetched through the FASTag and images captured when a vehicle will pass through a toll gate.

Patra further said immediate information will alert the vehicle owners and help in reducing road accidents and fatalities. “If any untoward incident or accident occurs, the vehicle owner or victim will not get any insurance claim if the vehicle involved does not have valid documents.”

He urged the vehicle owners to keep the vehicle documents up-to-date. “To curb accidents, it is important for all motor owners to follow the rules laid in the Motor Vehicle Act, 1988. Vehicle owners must also ensure that they have all the necessary documents to avoid penalties.”

The transport department is planning to start e-detection on national highways from January 1, 2023.
