Hyderabad, Nov 17: Passengers and visitors at Hyderabad International Airport were all set to experience a faster entry and exit from the Airport Car Park zone, a statement said here on Sunday.
In line with the Government of India’s mission to have 'One Nation One Tag – FASTag' and its signature programme of 'Passenger Is Prime', GMR led Hyderabad International Airport has introduced India’s first ever 'FASTag Car Park' in collaboration with NPCI (National Payments Corporation of India). Dedicated FASTag lanes have been created at the entry and exit which ensure zero wait time. The facility has been initially started with ICICI FASTag and would be rolled out through other major banks gradually. Non-FASTag vehicles would continue to use the existing parking system.
Speaking about the roll out of this initiative, Mr SGK Kishore, CEO, GHIAL, said, 'We are glad to announce the introduction of India’s first FASTag Parking system at Hyderabad International Airport. This new parking system provides for hassle free and quick movement in the parking zone. It is also aligned with Government of India’s efforts for digitalisation and cashless transactions. We are thankful to our partner NPCI for its support in implementing this facility. Apart from the regular benefits of FASTag, the system also promotes environmental sustainability viz. fuel saving, reduction in paper use and pollution.'
The FASTag solution is based on a simple to use, reloadable electronic RFID tag which enables automatic deduction of applicable parking charges, while one drives through the car Park without stopping for any cash transaction. This system is being introduced at Hyderabad International Airport for ease of payments and reduces queuing at the entry and exit of the parking lot, the statement added. (UNI)
