The South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) plans to install an electronic toll system for collecting tax, in order to decongest toll plazas.
The equipment will be installed at 13 locations by the end of March, 2017, on a pilot basis.
“We have started the tender process and a total of 65 lanes will be developed at 13 toll plazas for e- toll collection system. Based on the reviews, we will extend it to other locations. We will complete the work by end of the financial year,” said Puneet Goel, commissioner, South Corporation.
“It will work faster, compared to the manual process of collecting toll tax and also help reduce traffic jams,” he added.
The toll points selected for the project include Ghazipur (main and old), Shahdara flyover, Kundli, Rajokri, Kalindi Kunj, Tikri, Kapashera and Aya Nagar.
The terms and conditions for the functioning of the system have been laid out on the advice of the Environment Pollution Control Authority.
