Background/objectives: With the advent of Internet of Things (IoT), Government has taken a huge step in the field of Trafficking to initiate a hassle free and most convenient way such as using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) cards to pay at the Toll Plaza. Methods/statistical analysis: The Indian Government in association with the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI), understood the pain and introduced electronic toll collection (ETC), christened it as “FASTag”. So, India’s highways are going cashless with FASTag and vehicles do not need to stop at toll plaza for the cash transactions. Findings: This study deals with the application of the latest technology of the FASTag which is beneficial in avoiding the traffic hassle at the National toll plazas. With the use of FASTag installed on the front windshield of vehicles, toll generation is made a fun job. Automatically, the toll charges are deducted from FASTag account. This technology can also be used for the generation of challan and automatic deduction through the FASTag linked to the vehicle. Improvements/applications: The major applications of this aspect are Automatic Challan generation on the national highways which includes OverSpeeding, Seat Belt, Wrong-way driving, Parking in “No Parking” Zone, driving without a Valid Permit, and Overtaking from the Wrong Side.
