RTI activist Kareem Ansari filed a request under the RTI Act regarding the challans collected by the Telangana police department after there was change in government. The Hyderabad Commissioner of Police’s office responded by providing a categorised report from December 1, 2023, to February 22, 2023.
Kareem highlighted that the pending amounts for two-wheeler vehicles exceeded those for three-wheelers and four-wheelers. He called for proper action to be taken by the government. Kareem said, “During BRS government, the challans were imposed strictly. So, the intention behind RTI was to understand the challans issued after change in government. After change in government, there is no proper attention given towards traffic management and collecting challans.”
