Pay as You Use Tolling: NHAI to launch Pilot Project on Delhi-Mumbai Highway
The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is going to launch pilot project of Pay as you use tolling on the Delhi Mumbai national highway to study implement ability of system in the country.
The pilot project involves implementing a satellite based electronic toll collection system running on GPS/GSM technology for around 500 commercial vehicles on selected national highway for one year.
The proposed tolling system will work on combination of mobile telecommunications technology (GSM) and satellite-based Global Positioning System (GPS). It will be able to deduct money from vehicle account, credit money to concessionaire within one day and open toll gate. In case of failed transaction it will be able to alert toll operator to collect payment manually and not open the gate.
The pilot project will look at ways to integrate new solution with existing pre-paid wallet account offered under FASTag program by NHAI. It will also draw comparison between distance based tolling and existing tolling system, as also between virtual tolling and normal tolling.
