Delhi Government Introduces GPS & RFID Tags

To ensure better road safety, the Delhi government may soon insist that all public transport vehicles like autos and taxis have a GPS system and RFID tag on board.

A GPS system will ensure that the movement of a particular vehicle is tracked while an RFID tag can help in payment of toll charges electronically and reduce congestion on toll plazas.

The tag is affixed to the upper central portion of the vehicle’s windscreen and the toll is automatically deducted by the RFID reader fitted at the toll plaza when the vehicle crosses a toll plaza.

The state government said that the vehicle owner could be forced to install the GPS system and affix the RFID tag.
