Industry Specific ComplianceThe National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) on September 22, 2022, was notified regarding a consultation workshop on the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) based tolling in India organised by the NHAI to seek input and suggestions from various industry experts and stakeholders on different aspects of the GNSS-based tolling system. The workshop will help strategize and design the future roadmap for a free-flow tolling system in India based on GNSS technology.

Various stakeholders were invited for deliberations on the GNSS-based tolling system which includes relevant government departments, ISRO, NIC, and industry players such as Vehicle Manufacturers, AIS-140 On-Board Unit (OBU) manufacturers, Global GNSS service providers, Banks, Payment Aggregators/Gateway Service providers.

In the proposed GNSS technology-based tolling system, the NH stretch will be geo-fenced and will consist of virtual tolling points. Whenever a vehicle fitted with GNSS OBU will pass through these virtual tolling points, information on the distance traveled will be calculated based on satellite signals from multi-constellation such as NaVIC, GPS, etc., and the applicable fee will be computed by the central GNSS software system and deducted from the users’ bank account linked to the OBU.
