Digital payments platform FreeCharge has now made driving on the Yamuna Expressway smoother by removing the challenge of managing cash at four toll plazas on the 165-km route connecting national capital Delhi with tourist hub Agra in Uttar Pradesh.
“We are delighted to bring India’s fastest wallet to India’s most modern expressway. When users can zip between Agra and Delhi in just two hours, the toll payments too should be fast and seamless and FreeCharge’s 10-second payments will ensure just that. FreeCharge is part of India’s daily life and with this we become a part of many more journeys,” said Govind Rajan, CEO of FreeCharge.
To make a payment, the customer has to scan the QR code displayed at the toll counter using his app, enter the payment amount and the transaction will be completed.
The digital mobile wallet has also partnered with Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL), Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited BPCL) and will soon be available at all petrol pumps managed by them.
There are nearly 26,000 petrol pumps of IOCL, 13,500 petrol pumps of HPCL and nearly 13,800 petrol pumps of BPCL across the country.
In addition to more than 53,000 petrol pumps, FreeCharge will also be accepted by nearly 17,000 LPG distributors across the country and users will be able to pay for their LPG cylinder deliveries by using FreeCharge at their doorsteps.
