Telangana’s Police Department is developing an application based on artificial intelligence whereby we are trying to capture the picture of the person who is moving without a mask, added Mr Kumar.

He said that leveraging computer vision and deep learning techniques being implemented on surveillance CCTVs across the cities is the first of its kind in India.

We are working out how to challan that particular persons who are roaming without wearing masks and how to send a message to him through a mobile phone or any other mode of communication, to inform him that he has violated the government rules. Then he has to pay fine of Rs. 1,000, he added.

Mr Kumar said that the e-challan system for imposing Rs. 1,000 fine on persons not wearing the mask will start within the next two days.

Mr Kumar informed that challans will be issued to those motorists moving on the road on a two-wheeler or four-wheeler without a mask by capturing his photo without a mask.

“Already, we have the e-challan system in Hyderabad City, for four to five years now,” he said.

A motorist without a mask will be issued a challan by capturing his photo. Then the challan will go to his cell phone as SMS. The written message will also go to him like a normal e-challan we send to the vehicle owner’s address, he said.
