Toll Collection to Resume on National Highways from Midnight of 2nd December

Highway users being encouraged to carry adequate change , make use of electronic payment systems

The collection of toll at all Toll Plazas on National across the country will resume from the midnight of 2nd December, 2016. The Government is taking several steps to ensure smooth movement of traffic along the highways.

All Toll Plazas have been equipped with adequate numbers of POS ( Swipe machines) through which people can make payments using their credit or debit cards. Toll fee can also be paid through pre-paid instruments (electronic wallets)

In addition to the above electronic payment methods, the Government is also encouraging people to buy the RFID based FASTags introduced by the Ministry of Road Transport and to enable cashless payments at Toll Plazas. The FASTags can be stuck on to the windshield of the vehicle, and toll payments are made directly from the pre-paid account linked to it. Arrangements for sale of the FASTags are also being made at selected Toll Fee Plazas. The immediate use of FASTags will entail a 10 percent discount on the toll fee, in addition to faster movement through dedicated lanes at the Toll Plazas.

As for making cash payments, the highway users are being requested to carry adequate change with them to avoid delay. The old Rs 500 notes will be accepted till the midnight of December 15, but this will only be for purchasing FASTags and for making toll payments of more than Rs 200.

Officers and representatives of the National Authority of India are being deployed at all Toll Plazas to ensure smooth operations. Their contact details will be displayed at the Toll Plazas.
