Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway to Introduce ‘Pay Per Road Use’ System for Fairer Toll Taxation


Say Goodbye to Toll Booths: Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway Adopts ‘Pay Per Road Use’ Model for Smarter Commuting

The Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway, a major arterial road connecting the national capital with the bustling IT hub of Gurgaon, is set to adopt a revolutionary new “pay per road use” toll tax system. This would be a major departure from the current fixed amount toll tax system, where commuters pay a set fee regardless of the distance they travel on the expressway.

Under the new system, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) would only collect a fee based on the distance that commuters travel on the expressway. The toll tax collection would be facilitated by automatic cameras instead of traditional toll booths. These cameras would be installed across the entire 29 kilometre-long expressway to identify vehicles and ensure that the toll is collected electronically via FASTags, as reported by Hindustan Times.

To facilitate the process, the NHAI plans to install automatic number plate reading (ANPR) cameras at all entry and exit points. A tender has been initiated for the cameras, and the pay per road use system is expected to be implemented within the next six months, according to an NHAI official.

This innovative pay per use system not only makes toll tax collection more efficient, but also allows commuters to pay only for the distance they travel, thus reducing the financial burden on those who use the expressway for short distances. Moreover, the elimination of traditional toll booths will help reduce traffic congestion and vehicle emissions, making the expressway more eco-friendly.
