Toll collection on national highways to start from midnight

138

The collection of toll at all toll plazas on national highways across the country will start again from today midnight. The government has taken several steps to make sure that the traffic runs smoothly.

Adequate number of swipe machines has been set up in all the toll plazas through which people can make payments using their credit or debit cards. They can also fill up the toll fee by using prepaid instruments and electronic wallets.

The government is also persuading people to purchase FASTags introduced by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways.

The highway users are appealing people to carry adequate change with them to shun delay.

The old Rs 500 notes will be taken by the toll plazas till December 15 midnight, but this will only be accepted for purchasing FASTags and for making toll payments of more than Rs 200.
