NHAI Invites Global Expression of Interest for Satellite-Based Electronic Toll Collection

 For providing seamless and barrier-free tolling experience to National Highway users and enhancing efficiency and transparency of toll operations, NHAI backed Indian Highways Management Company Limited (IHMCL) has invited Global Expression of Interest (EOI) from innovative and qualified companies to develop and implement GNSS-based Electronic Toll Collection system in India.

NHAI plans to implement the GNSS-based Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) system within the existing FASTag ecosystem, initially using a hybrid model where both RFID-based ETC and GNSS-based ETC will operate simultaneously.  

Dedicated GNSS lanes will be available at toll plazas, allowing vehicles using the GNSS-based ETC to pass through freely. As GNSS-based ETC becomes more widespread, all lanes will eventually be converted to GNSS lanes
