Commuters on Delhi-Gurgaon E'way can recharge tags online
Online mobile and datacard recharge player Paytm on Thursday said it has introduced recharge facility for smart card users on the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway toll, a move that is likely to ease traffic congestion at the entry points.
"With the introduction of this feature, commuters travelling on the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway can now recharge their smart tags online through the Paytm portal," the company said in a statement.
About 2-2.5 lakh commuters travel on the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway every day, of which around 55,000 commuters travel in the peak morning hours and 52,000 in the peak evening hours, it said.
"There are about one lakh Delhi Gurgaon smart tag users in NCR and 60 per cent of them get it recharged going to the toll office. With the online recharge facility introduced by Paytm, commuters can now save valuable time and effort and recharge from the comfort of their homes or offices," said Harinder Takhar, CEO, Paytm.
After visiting the portal, they can recharge tags by entering their 17 digit tag number and the recharge amount, added Takhar.
