RFID system for all commercial vehicles soon
The Indian Motor Vehicles Department (MVD) will introduce Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system in all commercial vehicles in the State to streamline toll-collection methods, Transport Commissioner Rishi Raj Singh has said. The manual punching system could thus be phased out gradually, he told mediapersons on the sidelines of an MVD adalat at the PWD Rest House here on Saturday. The facility would be in place from next month, he said. “The RFID will help motorists to enjoy ‘automatic toll payment’ as vehicles approach the toll booths,” he said. “In the process, vehicles would be issued RFID tags, to be affixed on the windshield and the manufacturing and operational part would be handled by private firms in the sector,” Mr. Singh said.
