India Has Some Persistent Troubles With AET Conversion

The Times of India reports, toll road authorities acknowledge continuing problems with India’s nationwide conversion to cashless tolling in February. “NHAI officials have said that vehicle owners [with insufficient funds in their FASTag accounts] tend to argue when they are told to pay double the amount. The situation is similar along the Pune-Mumbai Expressway and, as a consequence, long queues are seen at toll plazas.” The article adds that “quite a few private vehicles” still do not have RFID stickers.
