NHA Extends Compulsory M-Tag Registration Date for All Travelers

National Highway Authority (NHA) has extended M-Tag Registration date at M-1 and M-2 Toll Plazas till June 12, 2019.

According to NHA spokesperson, M-Tag registration of vehicles for uninterrupted passage of vehicle on Islamabad-Peshawar Motorway (M-1) and Islamabad-Lahore Motorway (M-2) Toll Plazas was mandatory by May 02, 2019. However, for the convenience of the travelers, the date for registration for M-Tag has been extended up to June 12, 2019.


NHA Makes M-Tag Registration Mandatory for All Vehicles on M-1 & M-2

NHA has made it compulsory for all vehicles to get M-Tag registration when traveling on M-1 and M-2. The NHA had issued a notification in this regard, which stated that the new rule will take effect from May 2, 2019.

The authorities have taken this decision to avoid public inconvenience, prevent traffic congestion, and ascertain a free flow of vehicles at entry and exit points to the motorways.

M-Tag is a pre-paid RFID chip resting on a car’s windscreen. When the car approaches the toll plaza, the scanner automatically scans the chip, retrieves data regarding balance, the location of the entry, etc.

When the motorist exits, the amount is deducted automatically, thus eliminating the need to stay and wait in the long lines.
