New Delhi Municipal Council is planning to do a pilot project at its parking lot at Malcha Marg. It has tied up with a concessionaire who will install boom barriers, FASTag readers, CCTV system and other equipment to facilitate the project. The parking lot has space for 70 vehicles. If the pilot project is found workable, then NDMC will replicate in 40 parking lots that are being run directly by it. While the system is being installed, the regular collection of fees by cash will continue.
With FASTag being made mandatory for toll collection on highways, installation of the system at local parking lots can be an added advantage to the vehicle users. Parking lots operated by NDMC in the City provide space for around 4000 vehicles. The daily collection from parking lots with FASTag facility will be updated at NDMC’s control and command system automatically minimising chances of error. Every amount deducted through FASTag will automatically be credited to the designated account.
