According to Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Saumya Mishra, the police would now issue challans to the violators. DCP stated that a 15-day awareness campaign was held in the city from April 1 to 15, during which the traffic police department organized around 201 awareness seminars in various schools, colleges and other organizations to create awareness about traffic rules with the goal of reducing road accidents.

She went on to say that, in addition to holding seminars, the traffic police met with representatives of auto rickshaw unions, carriers and even commuters to inform them about the primary offences that are causing accidents.
