NEW DELHI: The number of FASTag users in the country has reached two crore, registering a growth of 400% in a year, resulting in increase in toll collection on national highways, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) said on Wednesday.
The highway authority said that the current toll collection is nearly Rs 92 crore per day which is a substantial increase from Rs 70 crore a year earlier. Nearly, 75% of the total toll revenue is being collected through FASTag.
NHAI, in the past one year, has given a big push to FASTag to reduce congestion at toll plazas and reduce pollution on account of queuing of vehicles at these locations. As social distancing has become the new norm, commuters are increasingly looking at FASTag as a toll payment option as it nullifies the chances of any human contact between the drivers and toll operators.
