 After announcing a 50% cut in the traffic fines if paid by February 11, 2023, the Karnataka Police has earned over Rs. 9 crores and settled several cases. 

A report by The Indian Express stated that by 5th February, the Bengaluru City Police have collected Rs. 22.32 crore in fines and have cleared 7,41,048 cases. 

According to the officials, the city police collected around Rs. 5.6 crore on Saturday and Rs. 8 crores on Saturday. Besides Bengaluru, the Mangaluru city officials have collected Rs. 4.6 lakh and cleared over 2,000 cases. Mysuru City collected Rs. 47 lakhs as a fine and cleared 22,362 cases. 

A tried and tested formula

The same discount system was successfully brought into practice by the Hyderabad police in 2022. According to a report the Bengaluru police had over two crore e-challans pending which amounted to approximately Rs. 500 crores.  The Bengaluru police would recover only Rs. 170 to Rs. 180 crores every year. The seemingly lucrative proposition for the citizens will be a profitable venture for the authorities given the rise in amounts they will collect.
