NHAI to begin ‘pay as you use’ pilot venture on Delhi-Mumbai National Highways


With the plan to execute “pay as you use” tolling in India, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will begin a pilot venture on the Delhi-Mumbai Highway to study and actualize the capacity of the framework in the nation.

The task to be keep running for one year includes actualizing a satellite-based electronic toll accumulation framework running on GPS/GSM innovation for around 500 business vehicles on the Delhi-Mumbai National Highway.

“Working on a combination of mobile telecommunications BSE -4.91 % technology (GSM) and the satellite-based Global Positioning System, the proposed tolling system would be able to deduct money from a vehicle account, credit the money to the concessionaire within one day and open the toll gate,” according to the Ministry of Road, Transport and Highways.

Be that as it may, if there should be an occurrence of a fizzled exchange it is ready to alarm the toll administrator to gather installment physically and not open the door.

As indicated by the service, the pilot task will take a gander at approaches to coordinate the new arrangement with the current prepaid wallet account offered by NHAI under the FASTag program.

“It will also draw a comparison between distance-based tolling and the existing tolling system, as also virtual tolling versus normal tolling. The request for proposal (RFP) for the project was floated on January 25, 2018. The pre-bid meeting is on February 9 and the Bid Due Date is February 26, 2018,” according to the ministry.
