New Delhi : Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) toll payment will be mandatory for commercial vehicles at Delhi’s 13 toll plazas from January 01 and vehicles not doing so will not be allowed to enter the state.
The Air Quality Management Commission for Delhi NCR stated this in its order. It has asked the South Delhi Municipal Corporation to ensure toll payment only from RFID for commercial vehicles at all 13 toll plazas in Delhi equipped with RFID systems. It has said that vehicles that do not pay through RFID should not be allowed entry. This system will be applicable from 01 January 2021.
