The Indian Government has unveiled plans to roll out common toll technology across the nation’s highways by next year, as part of its efforts to reduce queuing at toll plazas.

The government will employ radio frequency identification (RFID) technology for electronic toll collection, while the use of RFID tag in all vehicles will be made mandatory.

Discussions are underway with the society of Indian automobile manufacturers to fix the RFID tags in all the vehicles across the country.

The RFID system will enable toll booths to identify and detect vehicles from a distance, and toll charges will automatically be debited from the vehicle’s account without the need for vehicles to stop.

Under the RFID system, an account has to be recharged periodically as per usage, according to the Financial Express.
