Know when GPS toll collection will start in the country, Fast Tag will change the toll collection method.

GPS Tool Collection: The mode of toll collection in the country is going to change soon. After some time your vehicles will be tolled by GPS instead of FASTAG and vehicles will be able to complete their journey at full speed without stopping. When the toll collection process was introduced in the country by Fastag 3 years ago, it was called a game changer. However, now is the time to change this method as toll collection in the country will be done directly through GPS.

The government plans to start GPS toll collection from March 2024.

Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari had said about 3 weeks ago that GPS-based toll collection in the country could start from March 2024. In this regard, the testing of GPS-based toll collection is going to start from next month i.e. February 2024 on about 10 highways of the country. According to the news of Livemint, this information has been received. This clearly means that soon toll collection through Fastag will become a thing of the past and GPS based toll collection will become a part of people’s lives.

A pilot project will be started first.

The Livemint news also mentioned that its pilot project will be run on some limited highways before rolling out the new GPS tool across the country. Through this, it will be seen how it can be worked out to implement it smoothly and without any problems across the country by March. This information was given by Anurag Jain, Secretary, Ministry of Roads and Transport.

How will the new GPS-based tool system work?

With the new system, toll collection will be done at the route and will eliminate the need for fixed toll plazas. For this, geo-fencing of the highway will be done using Global Positioning System (GPS) or Radio Frequency Identification (RFID).
