Central Govt to remove toll plazas
The Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways said the government made a rule in 2019, all cars will have company-fitted number plates.
He said, “Now the plan is to remove all toll plazas and put cameras which will read these number plates and toll will be deducted from the account directly.”
According to reports, the cameras will read the number plates of the vehicles and automatically deduct toll fees from the bank accounts linked to their owner’s vehicle. The entries and exits will have the cameras installed.
The government has also made it mandatory for all vehicles to have company-fitted number plates. The report further reveals, the government aims to come up with a scheme to replace older number plates in the process.
However, it is to be noted, the scheme is still underway and legal amendments to facilitate this transition will also be carried out so as to penalise the vehicle owners who do not pay the toll fee.
