The Delhi-Mumbai route is now the country’s very first highway (NH 8) to offer electronic toll collection (ETC) service to travellers. For the functioning of the electronic toll collection service, the toll plazas on the Delhi-Mumbai route will have independent lanes. When your car passes through that particular lane, the specified amount of toll will be deducted from your linked account. This will decrease time wasted in vehicles queuing up at toll plazas.

To make use of this new system of electronic toll collection, your car needs to have an exclusive Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tag installed. The government has announced that new cars would come with this technology installed. However, you can also have your existing car retro-fitted with the Radio Frequency Identification tag.
