Over 40% traffic is being registered in hybrid lanes at toll plazas meant for both cash & electronic collection, nearly a month after government mandated use of FASTags in at least 75 percent of toll lanes at plazas across national highways.
The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has been mandated the task of implementing the ETC infrastructure to reduce congestion at toll plazas. Come January 15, only one hybrid lane in each direction will be allowed at toll plazas in the country.
“Right now, country wide toll collection via FASTags is still at around 60%,” said an official in the know. “While we saw a rampant increase in the first three weeks, the growth is stagnating now,” the official said.
"There are some toll plazas where the traffic flow is very less, so people are using the hybrid lane instead of FASTag ones," another official said.

Now is the correct time to visit the toll gate and make a database of people who have not bought fastag and check their income tax returns and the cars and vehicles they have. Because today everybody is having bank account and aadhar card. Why is there no new ways by the income tax department to catch the evaders.
