This Paper describes a new approach of tagging of number plate for collection of Toll with application to Automated Toll System. In this system we detect the location of number plate of vehicles with the help of template matching and extract number from number plate and process it for collection of toll. The number plate is tagged in the database with the user’s personal information, bank account and vehicle details. Toll is automatically deducted from users bank account or credit card and notification is provided to the user by sending SMS or Mail. Users have to follow standard rules for number plate design prescribed by the toll. Manual toll facility will be provided for unregistered vehicles and in case of system failure. This system can be implemented in different places such as Clubs, Restaurants, Companies, Parking areas etc. The main goal is to create automation in traffic management without much change in current system and should be less expensive .
