    While a total of 46,290 two-wheeler violators that comprise a 60%, the pending fine of the same amounted to Rs 2,46,71800 crore. The violators would be categorised and targeted as per their number of challans. Those with the maximum number of challans would be approached first. More so, a ‘special nakabandi’ would also be imposed for the same.

    Nagpur DCP Traffic Chinmay Pandit told Nation Next, “We’re currently doing our homework! We’re preparing a list of all traffic violators in the city who haven’t paid their fine yet. By coming week, we’re set to start this drive. We’re identifying top 50 violators each from 10 zones from whom we plan to recover dues by first asking them to pay. Upon refusal or non-payment, we’ll visit their houses”
