India going to implement toll booths and implement complete GPS-based toll collection within one year, Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari said on Thursday. He said 93 per cent of the vehicles pay toll using FASTag, but the remaining 7 per cent have still not taken it despite paying a double toll.
Gps Collection System Working Module???
FASTag already makes toll collection entirely automatic, with the charges deducted directly from the linked bank accounts of users. So, the new tolling system will bring about a free flow satellite-based ETC system that uses GPS and GPRS (General Packet Radio Service). GPRS is already used to provide cellular-based data services by several telecommunication providers in India, and all commercial vehicles sold after 2019 are equipped with an inbuilt Vehicle Tracking System (VTS). As such, the GPS-based system will further help make toll collection more efficient, by allowing vehicle movements across the country to be tracked accurately.
