India’s homegrown Paytm Payments Bank Limited (PPBL), has announced that it now enables convenient payments for car parking at Delhi AIIMS Hospital using FASTag. With this, visitors to the renowned hospital won’t have to wait in long queues at the parking lot, and can just pay digitally, empowering them with a seamless and hassle-free parking experience.
The Bank has partnered with Dhiraj Contractors, the authorized contractor managing the AIIMS parking, in order to curb congestion and queues at the hospital parking. This makes the entry and exit process faster as there is no need to stop and pay at a counter. The RFID technology used in FASTags allows automatic detection and deduction of applicable parking fees, enabling a smoother flow of vehicles in and out of the parking facility.
Surinder Chawla, MD & CEO, of Paytm Payments Bank, said, “As the largest issuers of FASTags in the country, we are committed to drive innovation in urban mobility. We are happy to bring FASTag-based parking to AIIMS, Delhi, which is one of the busiest hospitals in the country. Now, visitors can experience seamless payments with Paytm FASTag and simply drive out of the parking area.”
PPBL has already digitized parking payments in leading malls, metro stations, and airports across India. It has gained popularity for its instant activation and superior customer care support. It also allows users to pay directly from the Paytm Wallet without the need to create any separate account for recharge. PPBL continues to be the largest issuer of FASTags in the country and is also one of the largest acquirers of toll and parking plazas for the National Electronic Toll Collection (NETC) program, offering an interoperable nationwide toll payment solution.
Speaking on the partnership, Dhiraj Gupta, CEO of Dhiraj Contractors, said “People entering the AIIMS hospital parking would be able to pay digitally via FASTag with near free flow movement in and out of the parking lot. Now, vehicle owners won’t have to wait in queue to pay the parking fee as it will get deducted automatically like it is done at tolls on highways and expressways. We believe in ensuring customer delight by providing world-class technology for them.
