In a sigh of relief for many road commuters, NHAI has announced that you will not have to pay any toll at the toll plaza if the queue is longer than 100 meters. Yes, you read that right. That’s why the image again!
What are the new guidelines of No Toll by NHAI?
- The vehicle queue at any given time should not cross 100 meters mark. There will be a marking on every toll plaza for this.
- NHAI expects the toll time to be reduced to 10 seconds per vehicle during peak hours.
- If the queue surpasses the 100-meter line, the toll plaza will have to let go of vehicles in the front without any toll charges.
- If you are in a toll plaza that has a fault in the system, these norms will be applicable in that case too.
FASTags have already made the process at the Toll Plazas faster. According to NHAI, almost 96% of vehicles in a majority of states are using FASTags at the tolls.
