The government has now taken one more step in its preparations to collect toll tax through GPS technology by eliminating toll plazas. Delhi-Jaipur Highway and Bengaluru-Mysore Expressway will be the first two highways where the GPS-based tolling system will be introduced allowing passengers to pay toll according to the number of kilometres.

After the implementation of this new toll system (GPS Toll System), toll plazas will be removed from all the highways and with this system, passengers will have to pay the same amount of money as they travel on the highway.

Will gradually expand everywhere

This new GPS-based tolling system will be tried on several highways and gradually expanded. Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari had recently informed the Parliament that a new system to free the National Highway Network from toll plazas can be started in March.

Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari said that the central government has decided to remove all toll booths in India and implement GPS-satellite based toll connection system for vehicles. Toll fee booths are set up at various places to drive on the highways. And toll fees are collected through them only. For this, long ago the Central Government had also made Fastag card mandatory for vehicles. With this, drivers could easily recharge their cards and cross toll booths with it.
