Hyderabad airport gets India's first contactless parking

The coronavirus outbreak in the country has brought the concept of social distancing to the forefront. At the same time, contact services have also gained unprecedented importance due to health and hygiene reasons. We already know about contactless plane boarding procedures that are being followed at most airports in the country. But the international airport in Hyderabad has added a new name to its list of contactless services. Hyderabad's Rajiv Gandhi International Airport has introduced contactless parking by using FASTag, which is India's first car parking service to offer 100 per cent contactless service. It must be noted that Hyderabad international airport had introduced FASTag car parking in November 2019 but it has now upgraded it with contactless toll transactions given the coronavirus outbreak. The parking at the airport will be fully automated, which means that vehicle owners will no longer have to interact with parking executives or wait in queues.
This contactless parking system works on bank-issued NETC (national electronic toll collection) FASTag. The tag employs RFID (radio-frequency identification) technology and is linked to a prepaid account. The vehicle users are required to affix this FASTag on the windscreen so that the system at the airport parking automatically identifies it and store vehicle details in a local database with a timestamp. While exiting, the same will be reconciled by the system and the chargeable parking fee is automatically deducted from the FASTag which is linked to a prepaid account. This system allows a vehicle to zip in and out of the parking lot without having to wait in queues or interact with executives at the toll collection booth.
