NHAI has made a major announcement! Relief from FastTag hassle at toll plaza to be given

In India, the days of throngs of people, mayhem, and various altercations at toll plazas are almost approaching. The Indian government is set to launch a system that will eliminate the need for you to stop on any of the nation’s national highways, allowing your car to travel quickly and uninterrupted to its destination. To deploy the satellite-based electronic toll collection system, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has out an invitation to tenders and expressions of interest (EOI) from all over the world.


A TOI article claims that the NHAI

has also mandated a significant modification to the hardware and IT setup at toll plazas to facilitate tax transactions through FASTag hassle-free for commuters. Only businesses with substantial prior experience in this field will be granted opportunities by the agency. The business awarded the contract for this work will be required to purchase all of its equipment from manufacturers that have been approved by the Ministry of Electronics and IT’s Directorate of Standardization Testing and Quality Certification.


“There is no space for error”

The company will need to have STQC certification for all of its equipment. Including RFID readers with antennas, automatic number plate readers, and toll lane controllers. And toll plaza servers, to interact with the NHAI unit in charge of toll management, IHMCL. The revised criteria require system integrators to guarantee IHMCL. That in the event of a malfunction is found at the toll plaza assigned to them due to the equipment. The agency will have the right to immediately suspend the panel and forfeit its bank guarantee. The satellite will now be charged a toll. In an official release, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHAI) stated that this toll-paying system. Which is based on the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), and will offer drivers on national highways a singular and amazing experience.


The demise of the toll booth system is not far off.

The goal of this NHAI project is to get rid of the current highway toll booth system. In an official statement, the agency stated that “Indian Highways Management Company Limited (IHMCL). An NHAI company has invited EOI from qualified companies for the development and implementation of GNSS-based electronic toll collection systems. To improve the efficiency and transparency of toll operations and to provide a hassle-free toll collection experience to users of all national highways in the country.” The statement said that NHAI is planning to implement GNSS based electronic toll collection (ETC) system. Within the existing Fastag system. Initially, there is a plan to adopt a mixed model under the pilot project in which both RFID-based ETC and GNSS-based ETC will work together.
