Bangla Hunt Desk: The Narendra Modi Government took a big decision to allow the free movement of vehicles across the country. Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said India would be toll-free in the next two years. For this, the government has decided to finalize the global positioning system. Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said vehicle tolls would be deducted only from customers' Linked Bank accounts within the next two years.
Speaking at the ASSOCHAM Foundation Week event, Gadkari said, “With the help of the Russian government, we will soon finalize the GPS system, after which India will be completely toll-free in two years.” Please be informed that at this time all the commercial vehicles in the country are connected to the tracking system. On the other hand, the government is speeding up the installation of GPS technology in all old vehicles.
Revenue from National Highways Authority (NHAI) tolls could increase to ৩ 1.34 trillion in five years after using GPS technology. The minister said, “A plan to use GPS technology for toll collection was given yesterday in the presence of Road Transport and Highways and Chairman, NHI. We expect our toll revenue to reach Rs 1,34,000 crore in the next five years.
The government is taking this special step to bring freedom of movement in the whole country. In the last one year, the central government has made fasttag mandatory in all toll plazas in the country. Fuel costs have been much lower since the inevitability of Fasttag. At the same time, it has been possible to curb pollution.
