With this partnership, commuters across the country can now pay their toll charges instantly with Paytm.
Commuters can simply scan the QR code placed at the toll payment counters using the Paytm app, and pay their toll charge instantly. This will move, millions of daily commuters can bid goodbye to the hassles of long queues at tolls and the worries associated with dealing in cash.
Speaking at the launch, Kiran Vasireddy, Snr. Vice President – Paytm said, “Dealing in loose change at toll plazas has become a major challenge for commuters and toll attendants alike as it slows down traffic and leads to excess fuel combustion and pollution. Now users can pay toll tax with Paytm at all major toll plazas across the country, enabling the transportation sector transition to a digital economy.”

With its assertive focus on mobile payments, Paytm is inching closer to its aim of making cashless transactions a way of life across India.
