LHC declares e-challan as illegal
The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday declared e-ticketing challans as illegal which are being operated through the Safe Cities Authority cameras.
Justice Tariq Saleem accepted the plea against issuance of the e-ticketing challans and ruled that e-challans were being issued without cabinet approval, adding that e-challans cannot be issued without legislation.
The counsel for the petitioners had taken the position that e-challans were being issued illegally while the Safe City Authority had no legal right to challan through cameras.
The lawyer pleaded that Safe City Authority’s move to issue e-challans should be declared null and void.
