Digital India is a term that mostly every Indian is familiar with. With the advancing technology,
every other person is opting for the ways to go digital and leverage the use of digital money
rather than depending on cash. Every single sector of the progressing economy is opting for such
means and the National Highways Authority of India is catching up to it as well.
NHAI has been amalgamating the progressive Information Technology in the infrastructure of
Highways for providing the commuters with world class and comfortable services. In lieu of the
emergence of this ideal, the National Highways Authority of India has introduced their own
citizen-centric application, Sukhad Yatra. The application is soon going to receive its public
announcement but is currently available for free download for the Android and iOS users.
Backed with all the necessary information that a highway commuter would require, this app is
definitely a great move by the concerned department.
The ride doesn’t just stop there though. NHAI has been encouraging the notion of digital India
since day one, the integration of Electronic Toll Collection is simply accentuating the same. This
has not just fastened the process of tax collection at the toll plazas but has also made the process
more authentic and transparent. The hyperactive workflow is what has been a highlight
throughout the process.
Within just a year of implementation, the Electric Tolling has been made operational across 383
Toll Plazas in India with a least of one lane dedicated just to ETC. There has been a vehement
work going on across the entire nation to convert every single tolling lanes into an ETC lane.
This is expected to streamline the tax payment and facilitate transparency in the entire process.
Apart from this all, NHAI has also integrated FASTag stickers into their electronic tolling
process. This is a small Radio Frequency Identification sticker which can be detected by the
sensor in the toll booths and the tax amount will be deducted from the associated FASTag
account without any hassle. With over 1 million users of the same, this initiative by NHAI to
promote Electronic Toll Collection has definitely boosted the procedure of tax collection.
The concept of open tolling is also in the works. NHAI is testing their hands on the GPS tolling
on the Delhi to Mumbai corridor. If executed perfectly, this can make taxpaying easier than
before. The entire process would be based on the “distance based tolling” that’s going to be
operated and handled by software without any manual work at these toll plaza infrastructure.
The National Highways Authority of India has been playing out their cards for enhancing
people’s convenience while on a highway journey, the integration of digital means with ETC and
Sukhad Yatra is simply accentuating that drive even further.
