Daily lakhs of vehicles pass through the Toll plazas which are operated by private entities. The majority of us do not know what goes beyond, apart from paying the toll fee and we conveniently ignore, “is the amount/toll fee being collected is correct?” , “is the contractor not exceeding the period of toll collection ?” , “are they issuing the correct challan for the toll fee?” etc,
NHAI has introduced National Highways Toll Information System (NHTIS) which has all the information about any toll plaza in the country. NHAI is responsible for the development,maintenance and management of National Highways,which are built under Build Operate and Transfer(BOT) or Public Private Partnership(PPP) or Engineering, Procurement and Contract (EPC).
The National Highways Toll Information System (NHTIS) has all the information about any toll plaza in the country. The portal has information on all the toll plazas are mapped and coloured based on the mode in which they are built.Toll Plazas are run by private people according to the rules and regulation set up by the government. One can also download an android application of the NHTIS.
