A new GPS-based toll system dubbed ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Reader) cameras will be used by the national government to collect tolls.
The toll tax will be deducted from the vehicle owner’s bank account using this method, which reads the license plate of the car.
According to a survey by the Transport Corporation of India and IIM Calcutta, oil worth $45,000 is wasted annually owing to traffic bottlenecks at toll plazas, and around Rs 1 lakh crore is squandered due to parking cars there. This new ANPR method might end up being preferable to Fastag.

Additionally, a piece of software will be put at the toll plaza to enable the automatic deduction of toll taxes when a vehicle enters the toll plaza.
