Soon the picture in this post will be non-existent on India roads. This is as India looks to solve the problem of long queues at toll collection booths by adopting and payment solution which adopts RFID technology. Last month, we wrote that New Delhi was looking to adopt a similar solution to solve their congestion problems. It now seems that the authorities in India are looking to take this solution up to nationwide level. Seen in The Hindu Times, the authorities are in the midst of preparing to implement a trial of the RFID based payment solution along one highway connecting Delhi and Amritsar. Should this project be successful and well received, they are looking to expand this implementation to other parts of India!
The system uses technology which has been around and therefore proven to work. There will be receivers which will be installed on the inside of the windshield of cars. The receivers will be linked to the driver's bank accounts where the amount will be deducted automatically every time the driver passes through the toll booths. They have already lined up 4 banks who want to set up backend support for the proposed system. With this RFID system, the authorities in India are hoping that this will solve the dreaded problems of traffic slowdowns in India.
