Govt Preparing to Abolish FASTag System


New Delhi, 3rd May : The government is planning to bring a new system of toll collection by stopping the FASTag system. Now the central government is preparing to collect toll tax using the satellite navigation system. According to sources the new system of toll collection is already being tested as a pilot project in India.

In this new system, the toll has to be paid according to the number of kilometres the vehicle travels on the highway. Under the new system the more kilometres you drive on the highway or expressway, the more toll will be charged.

The pilot project of the new toll system is being checked in India. The amount of toll is charged according to the number of kilometres the vehicle travels on the highway. Due to the success of this process in European countries, preparations are being made to carry out it in India as well.

Currently, the entire amount of the distance from one toll to another toll is collected from the vehicles. Even if you are not going there and your journey is being accomplished somewhere in the middle, the toll has to be paid in full.

Nearly all vehicles (98.8 percent) in Germany have satellite navigation systems installed. The tax calculation begins as soon as the vehicle enters the toll road. As soon as the vehicle moves from the highway to the road without toll, the toll of that kilometer is deducted from the account. The system for deducting toll is the same as that of FASTag. At present, toll is being charged from FASTag on 97 percent of vehicles in India.

Before carrying out the new system, it is essential to change the transport policy as well. Professionals are preparing the required points for this. 1.37 lakh vehicles have been covered across the country in the pilot project. A study report is being set by experts from Russia and South Korea. This report may be released in the next few weeks.
