Starting today, the South Delhi Municipal Corporation has mandated commercial vehicles to carry Radio Frequency Identification tags to enter the national capital. RFID tags for commercial vehicles are again being made mandatory in Delhi. No more commercial vehicles will be allowed to enter Delhi without an RFID tag.
An SDMC official said: "In case of no RFID tag on any commercial vehicle, now a provision has been made to cancel its permit. This radio frequency identification system has been installed at 13 toll plazas in Delhi. Last month also an order was issued regarding this and our team was working on these 13 toll plazas. So far, we were letting those without RFID tags leave with a warning, but from August 31, it is being strictly implemented."
According to an SDMC notice, payment of toll tax or environment compensation charge can be made only through an RFID tag for any commercial vehicle entering Delhi from August 31.
