Mobile payment and e-commerce platform Paytm today (14 December) announced its partnership with the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to enable cashless payments at all state, national and city toll plazas across the country.
Commuters can now pay their toll instantly by scanning the QR code placed at the toll payment counters using the Paytm app, the company said in a statement. This enables “the transportation sector transition to a digital economy," said Kiran Vasireddy, Senior Vice President, Paytm.
Paytm is currently accepted across taxis, petrol pumps, grocery shops, restaurants, coffee shops, multiplexes, parking, hospitals and some other facilities.
