India will soon see a uniform electronic toll collection system on its national highways, increasing the revenue, curbing leakages and ensuring smooth travel across the country. The system, which will use passive RFID (radio frequency identification) technology, is likely to be in place by May 2012.

The system will increase the revenue and curb leakages in toll collection across highways.
RFID technology is a tracking system and has widespread applications across several industries like retail and logistics.

The RFID tag will be stuck on the windscreen and cost about Rs 100, while the toll booth will have a tag reader, which is expected to cost about Rs 2 lakh.

A vehicle owner can "recharge" the account for the vehicle (the account number will be the RFID tag number), and when the vehicle passes through the lane of any toll plaza across the country, the appropriate toll will be debited from the account.
