The Government of India is planning to start satellite-based electronic toll collection in the country. It will first be implemented for commercial vehicles. Subsequently, this technology will also be gradually implemented in passenger cars, jeeps and vans. The installation of this Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) is being planned at all toll collection points in the next two years. This will complete the works on the toll plaza and Fastag.

Planning is happening like this.

Thanks to new technology, traffic jams at the toll plaza will be alleviated. Under this technology, the user must pay a toll depending on the distance they must travel. The GNSS-based toll system will be a barrier-free electronic toll collection, in which the movement of the vehicle will be tracked to determine the number of kilometers traveled by the vehicle.

This will be the specialty

The National Highways Authority of India, under the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, has invited global companies to implement a GNSS-based electronic toll collection system in India. Each toll plaza will have two or more GNSS lanes with advanced readers to identify GNSS vehicles. Non-GNSS vehicles entering the GNSS lane will be charged an additional fee. The GNSS-based tolling system will be implemented on 2,000 kilometers of national highways in the first three months. Subsequently, the goal has been set to increase it to 10,000 kilometers in the next nine months and to 25,000 kilometers of toll highways and 50,000 kilometers in 15 months.

Let us tell you that there is currently a Fastag ecosystem in India. In which radio frequency identification (RFID) technology is used for electronic toll collection, introduced in the form of Fastag in 2015.

Nitin Gadkari has given green signal

A few days ago, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said that sometimes people get stuck in long queues at toll plazas and have to wait for a long time. The government has come up with a new way to address this. The satellite tolling system will be launched soon. It is being used as a pilot project in Bengaluru, Mysore and Panipat. It is believed that this toll system will be launched in the country this year.
