There is going to be a big change in the toll collection and other things related to it in the next few years. Union Road and Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari has confirmed this openly. He said in Parliament today that the toll plazas will be completely abolished in the next one year. With this, all the drivers will have to pay the same tax as they are walking on the road.
Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said that in the coming time, tax will be collected from everyone by using GPS i.e. Global Positioning System. The vehicles will be tracked on and off the highway via GPS and the money will be collected accordingly.
The more tax goes on the highway
He said that the government is working on such technology that the camera will take your photo with the help of GPS from where you will climb on the highway, and where you get off the highway, the photo will be clicked and thus you will be charged the same distance Will have to pay. This means that if you walk only 10 kilometers on the highway, then you will have to pay tax only for that.
GPS will be free for older vehicles
Responding to the question of Amroha MP Danish Kunwar Ali setting up a toll plaza on the road near Mukteshwar, the stronghold of Mukteshwar, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said that GPS was being provided in new vehicles from the company. At the same time there is a problem of GPS in older vehicles, in such a situation, GPS will be installed in these vehicles for a new system of toll tax collection by the government.
FASTag to be recovered
Let us know that the government has fully implemented FASTag recently and the Union Minister has said that tax will be collected through this in the new toll collection system. He informed that so far 93% toll tax collection is being done through FASTag and action is being taken to link the remaining vehicles also.
