In this electronic world, the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) is all set to install an electronic toll system for collecting tax in order to decongest toll booths! By the end of March 2017, there will be 13 locations fully equipped with this facility.
The work has started and about 65 new lanes will be made at 13 toll plazas for e-toll collection systems and based on the response, more locations will adapt to this. With this e-toll service, the overall process will become faster and thus reducing traffic on the streets all together! *Win-Win situation*!
The toll points selected for the change for now are Ghazipur (main and old), Shahdara flyover, Kundli, Rajokri, Kalindi Kunj, Tikri, Kapashera and Aya Nagar. e-toll system involves tax payment through Radio Frequency Device System (RFDS), which allows the automatic deduction of toll tax from the customer’s account.
The process is such, that Radio Frequency Identification cards will be sold to the vehicle owners and they can get it recharge with a certain amount. The ID will be pasted on the windshield of the vehicles. The e-toll machine installed at the toll plaza will read the ID card at a distance of 100 metres and automatically deduct the amount from person’s account. Easy-peasy!
Good going Delhi!
