In a fantastic initiative by Mumbai Traffic department, all traffic violation related fines by a user can be tracked through MUM Traffic App.

However. several violators have been caught unaware & have not received any alert on their mobile phones for violation of rules such as breaking signals, not stopping before zebra crossing etc.

Enter vehicle number & last four digits of chassis number (engine number) to log into the app. 

Many have come to know about fine accumulation only when they are caught red-handed by traffic cops. 

Mobile number registered while buying vehicle enables Mum...

A Ola driver has been involved in two incidents of conning customers. 

The customers have lost money from their Ola e-wallet.

The customers booked Ola & called the driver. The driver called them back & asked for OTP that customers received through SMS. 

This OTP was received through SMS because the driver re-installed Ola app on his device by feeding customer's mobile number.

Once after getting logged into Ola application, the driver withdrew the funds from Ola Money. 

Note that this OTP is not the 4 digit OTP that Ola sends on the app.
