Where do I buy the RFID from? Is it different from Fast tag?

 

We will get more details once it is launched.

Initially, we can get it from toll both since it is still in trial mode.

I would suggest to wait for few more days before buying.

Fast tag won't work???


Fast tag is under NHAI, I doubt if it will work on Hyderabad ORR.
If there is a tie up, fast tag it makes more sense. If not our windshields will be filled with RFID tags 
:D

Hyderabad ORR toll update, multiple entry introduced.
 

 

Small correction. It's not multiple entry. It's only up and down. .
Take entry ticket and get onto Orr.
At exit ask for up and down and pay the amount for both up and down.
He will give a slip. Keep it with you for your return journey.

Return journey, at entry take a token.
At exit. Give both token and up and down slip you have taken earlier.

Valid for 24 hours. For two single journeys.

Initially, they checked slip manually and let me use it multiple times. Now, they started scanning and are allowing only for two single journeys.

 

I'll post the picture of the slip in a while.

So we can use it only once?
 

Example:
Gachibowli ORR to Shamshabad (pay for return at Shamshabad exit)

Shamshabad to Gachibowli (We can use up and down ticket)


Again, If we want to drive from Gachibowli to Shamshabad, it wont work.

Agree on it, Fast-tag implementation will be easy. 

From the information received RFID tags are procured from Hong Kong. These wont work with fast tag.
Let's wait and see.

Two more young life's lost their life on Hyderabad ORR.

Toyota Etios lost control, hit the median,jumped over the divider and banged head on with i20, which is coming on the opposite direction.

My suggestion to people driving on ORR, please don't stick to fast lane.
Simple lapse in concentration can be fatal.

Use fast lane to overtake and switch back to second lane.
Some ORR stretches are very isolated, after a long drive we trend to get over relaxed.

I tried to procure them at Gachibowli toll.
Toll operators are clueless about the RFID tags.

I seriously feel Fast-tags should be considered by the Telangana Govt. Last weekend during my trip to Andhra Pradesh, I have observed immense promotion of fast-tags issued by the SBI at big eateries or restaurants like '7' and 'Palle Ruchulu' restaurants. It definitely reduces a lot of time getting wasted at the Toll gates.

Congestion near tolls, now a common sight on Hyderabad ORR.

They should provide some alternative to daily commuters.

Implementing fast-tag on Hyderabad ORR? may not be possible, since it comes under national highways.
I may be wrong with above statement. 

Off-late traffic levels are pretty high between Gachibowli and Shamshabad exit.

There has to be dedicated lanes functioning exclusively for Fast-tags no matter what. This is not seen in our country which I have noticed better seen in the north but in the South of where I have travelled in India, All the vehicles take all the lanes. This doesn't encourage the commuters to purchase a fast-tag.

That doesn't work, you need to get a separate tag called fast-tag.

 

Fast-tag is currently working on national highways.

It is still not enabled on Hyderbad ORR.

 

 

You can go through the above link.

Just for info - why is that RFID used for?

 

 

RFID is basically Radio frequency identification device which Is just like a bar code or a strip on your credit card. This RFID tags installation was done by the Government earlier not just for the electronic toll collection but also to track any vehicle at any point of time without the consent of the vehicle owner.

I have heard that this still appears that there is technically no legal grounds for this tag mandate by the government so far as this could lead to several privacy issues which have not been addressed.

During a period, this was installed on all the medium and heavy vehicles in the country. There is still no clear information on the ways which the Government intents to use the RFID tags which have already been installed.

What happened to Gachibowli to Shamshabad section.

Road quality went down drastically.

Very bad maintenance.

Also they increased the toll price from 20/- to 30/-

Any information on fast-tag solution?

Daily I'm waiting around 10 minutes at Gachibowli exit?

haha 
It is one of the busiest strech now.
Quality went down drastically.
There is some work going on but I don't think there will be any improvement.
Roads are super smooth after Shamshabad.

      Car owned: Baleno petrol manual transmission.
      Travellers: Me, better half, 2 kids (10Y, and 5Y)
       
      Before posting as a new topic, i browsed all the topics for the topic to start.
      My intention is to take expert tips from all expert guys like you.

      1. During ascending on ghat road (which i observed on Lonavala ghat road), i drive in 2nd gear. At the hair pin curve, applied full accelarotor, as i felt my vehicle may not move further. Scary experience. Is it normal?
      Somebody suggest me to use 1st gear for those ascending hair pin curve...
       
      2. I have read lot of experience of driving in Wayanad. With my above experience can I hit the road? Planning this October holidays after getting 3rd service done.
      My wife drive well if the roads are well mainatained like NH44. 
       
      3. Does Nitrogen gas really helps for better maintenance of the tyres?
       
      I will continue post my queries here in this forum, if i get some response as I believe in learning is continuous process until you die!
      Note: I start exploring the forum very recently. Had i read all the post before my unplanned tour to Mumbai, i would never taken the route of NH65 especially from Omerga to Sholapur😩.
       
      Thank you for your time and valuable inputs.
