No tolls on highways! GPS-based toll collection system coming!


Toll plazas on national highways will be abolished within a year, according to Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari. He said that toll booths will be erased next year and collection will be done through GPS. 

"I want to assure the House that within one year all physical toll booths in the country will be removed and toll collection will be done via GPS. The money will be collected based on GPS imaging," said Nitin Gadkari.

According to his ministry, around 93% of the vehicle started using FASTag to pay tolls and 7% of them are not using this electronic toll collection system. 

Nitin Gadkari also added that he has asked for police inquiry on 7% of vehicles that have not used FASTag to pay tolls. Such vehicles can be charged under toll fraud and GST evasion.
