“What Is Toll Tax and What are the Toll Tax Rules in India?”

Most of us are knowledgeable about the Toll taxes that are charged on the state highway and national highway by the Indian government for gathering funds and their maintenance.

Toll tax help to accumulate funds and are necessary to provide infrastructure. They also ensure that the expense of road safety and security is taken care of, as highway robberies are on high in many parts of India.

Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari has said that the usage of GPS (Global Positioning System) will ensure that India becomes a “Toll Plaza Free” nation in the next two years.

He also said “The toll collection may touch Rs.34000 crores by March 2021. With the usage of GPS for toll collection, the income in the next five years will be 1.34 trillion.

What is Toll Tax?

Toll tax is the amount you pay to the Indian Government to use the expressway or the highway anywhere in India.

This money is used by the Government to construct roads, highways and develop connectivity between the states.

A highway or expressway is a suitable way to travel between different cities and states. The toll tax rate changes across different highways and expressways across the country.

The amount is based on various factors like the distance of the road, the vehicle you are traveling, and so on.

 

Toll Tax Rules in India

Before moving to the other rules, let us look at the latest toll tax rule in India

FASTag Mandatory–  Starting 15th February 2021, FASTag has been made compulsory for all the vehicles passing the highway or the expressway.

This step has been taken to reduce the vehicular traffic at the toll plazas. The Government of India has made the electronic toll payments mandate in all toll plazas across India.

What is FASTag?

FASTag is easy to use, a reloadable tag that allows the automatic deduction of toll charges and lets you pass through the toll plaza without waiting for the cash transactions.

FASTag is linked to prepaid accounts like Paytm from which the appropriate toll amount is deducted.

FASTag is issued by certified banks like ICICI Bank, Axis Bank, PNB, KMB, SBI among others on POS (point of sale) locations.

You can get FASTag at the office of toll operators at the toll plazas, some selected petrol pumps, the regional office of NHA, banks’ websites, or even online portals like Flipkart, Amazon, and Paytm Mall. 

Let’s look at few other toll plaza rules in India

Vehicles– As per the toll tax rules, there cannot be more than six vehicles per lane on the tollbooth during peak hours.

Lanes/Booth– The number of toll lanes/booths should ensure that service time per vehicle during the rush hours is 6 seconds per vehicle.

The Number of Toll Lanes– The toll lanes have to be raised if the maximum waiting time for the vehicle exceeds 2 minutes.

Conclusion– Make sure to pay the toll fees and use FASTag as the vehicles without tags would have to pay a double toll fee. Stay aware and careful.

“Key Roles Fleet Management Can Play in your Construction Business”

It is a misconception amongst people that when we talk about vehicle tracking system, it is mainly needed in the shipping and freightage companies.

However, we want to expose the myth. Even the businesses that have a permanent setup and stock-still assets, like a construction company, can become a keen GPS tracking services user.

With fleet tracking, you can ensure that your vehicles and equipment are put to use as per their schedule in the right way.

You can be worry-free about your equipment’s going missing or being abused. 

What is Fleet Management?

Fleet management is a practice of running commercial vehicles like cars, trucks, etc to ensure supreme vehicle utilization, less fuel consumption, and regular maintenance. Fleet managers also guide the drivers to improve fleet safety.

In the industries such as construction, fleet management can involve asset tracking. It also includes the management of heavy equipment like cranes, bulldozers to smaller equipment like containers, generators, or specialty tools.  

Fleet management aims to boost productivity, maximize performance along with the safety of organizations drivers and vehicles.

This is often achieved by a combination of various factors like vehicle tracking, fuel consumption report, monitoring of driver’s behavior, and administration of vehicle maintenance. These multiple functions are managed using a fleet management system.

How can Fleet Management Help your Construction Business?

The construction industry suffered a rough patch throughout the pandemic period and as a result, fleet operations too suffered a lot. Although things seem to get back to normal, it still needs to ride through the changing landscape.

The technology can help lessen the cost of the construction fleet operations, alleviating safety risk, while still trying to keep the projects profitable.

As most of the big Indian players in this sector operate on a net margin of 2-4%. This need is vital. 

As mentioned above, fleets in the construction industry have a mix of large and small equipment (from heavy cranes, bulldozers, loaders, trenchers, pickup trucks to generators) and frequently need to be used at odd hours in rough conditions with no compromise on safety measures.

There are many concerns seen on the construction sites like

  • Who’s using the equipment and for how long?
  • How much cost does it take to run the equipment?
  • Am I running it legally and following all safety measures?
  • Are drivers using the vehicle for personal use?

There are endless questions that the admin has to consider. So, let’s unlock few benefits of using fleet management and see how it can contribute to construction business growth

Stay a Step Ahead from Theft– 

In today’s world, theft is quite common. Using the GPS fleet management system is one the best way to avert robbery. The GPS monitoring system, not only informs you about your vehicle’s location but also sends out a notification if anyone tries to burgle the vehicle or equipment.

Improved Productivity

Construction works largely depends on teamwork. A digitally combined fleet management system requires efficient communication of almost everything on a regular basis.

You are communicating about your daily fleet operations, progress, upcoming responsibility, and so forth. Construction equipment is expensive and has to be well-maintained to avoid unnecessary breakdown.

Plus, if the equipment stops working, it may delay the project due to the lack of a particular vehicle or equipment to complete the job. Through the fleet management system, you get regular service reminders, control fuel levels, and monitor unsuitable activities. 

UniGPS Solutions have been a market player for a long time. To improve the safety of construction vehicles, UniGPS Solutions introduced UniDash Cam with a live tracking device.

In case of accident/ equipment mishandling, it records the event and shows details like drivers behavior, driving habits, etc so that the opposite party cannot unfairly extract money from you even if it was their fault.
