Pilot testing of the technology will start on select highways. The GPS-toll collection system tracks a vehicle's movements and calculates toll charges based on the distance covered, offering a more equitable approach compared to fixed tolls.

This initiative aims to alleviate traffic congestion and enhance the accuracy of toll collection.
