Role of FASTag in Toll Collection:
i.FASTag, an electronic toll collection system operated by NHAI, utilises Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology.
ii.Over 8 crore users with a penetration rate of approximately 98% have revolutionised FASTag in India.
iii.It enables toll payments directly from prepaid or savings accounts linked to it or directly from the toll owner.
RBI’s Advice:

MoRTH to Introduce New Satellite-based Toll Collection System to Replace Toll Plazas in India
Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) announced a new satellite-based toll collection system will be introduced to replace the existing toll collection system in India.

  • The satellite-based toll collection will utilise the Global Positioning System (GPS) and cameras to deduct money directly from bank accounts based on road usage (distance covered).
  • The new system will help reduce toll tax and through this, the time, money, and fuel usage of the travelers can also be saved.

Note: According to MoRTH, by the end of 2024, India’s road network of National Highways will be the same as that of the United States of America (USA).

iii.The amount of toll will depend on the distance traveled by the vehicle. All these data will be gathered via GPS.
Note: At present, toll fees are fixed at every plaza irrespective of the distance covered by a vehicle.
How Does the System Work?
i.GPS coordinates of vehicles are matched to calculate toll fees.
ii.Toll charges are automatically deducted as vehicles approach collection points.
iii.Vehicles must be equipped with GPS-enabled number plates.
iv.The Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras installed on highways identify GPS-enabled number plates for deduction.

The proposed slabs for the surrender value percentages are:

ii.35% of total premiums paid if surrendered during the third year
iii.50% of total premiums paid if surrendered between the fourth and seventh years
