Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

Revolutionizing Transport ?

Shri Nitin Gadkariji would have nothing less than full implementation of :

·         Internet  of  Vehicles [ IoV ] [ 04  March 2017  ]


·         Can  Technology  Outsmart  Traffic  Offenders ?  [ 16  June  2017  ]


·         Urban Transport Policy  [ 09  June 2017  ]


He has made a beginning by setting a target of issuing Radio Frequency Identification ( RFID ) or FAST-ags to 5 MILLION vehicles in ONE YEAR , to minimize cash transactions at toll plazas

The Transport Ministry will make all toll lanes RFID enabled and FAST-ags will be provided for all vehicles sold at dealerships

The Ministry has already asked automakers to fit DIGITAL TAGS in all vehicles

Toll lanes would also be enabled for a touch-and-go prepaid card system soon

A FAST-ags is linked to an account where the user adds money. When the vehicle approaches the lane at a toll plaza , a sensor reads the tag attached to the front windscreen of the vehicle , deducts the fee and the gate opens

The Ministry is also looking at more technology-based solutions

Soon , a GPS based toll collection system would be piloted at the Eastern Expressway , which will do away with the concept of toll gates

 Let no one doubt Shri Gadkariji’s determination to implement  :

·         Who says Impossible  ?  [ 31  May  2017  ]


·         Leveraging  NaviC  ?  [  30  May  2017  ]
