MCGM has tied hands with State Bank of India for the collection of Octroi which will not just solve octroi evasion but also traffic problem at Octroi junctions. Joint Commissioner of MCGM and Octroi Chief, V Radha informed MCGM along with SBI have initiated the use of a smart card at Octroi polls. The card would relive the trucks at the posts within 20 seconds easing traffic problem here. These cards are meant for those 3000 trucks and tempos that brings sand and cement in Mumbai everyday. The corporation would also be starting gold and platinum cards. The Smart card would also solve the issue of fake notes collected at the posts.
