Skalanews - The Government and Bank Indonesia, Friday (6/10) held a meeting to finalize the plan to use electronic money in all toll roads in Indonesia on October 31, 2017.

"Today is a coordination meeting, so nothing has changed about the plan," said Aribowo, Executive Director of Bank Indonesia's Central Transformation Program (BI), at the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs, Jakarta on Friday.

Attending the meeting led by Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Darmin Nasution are BI Governor Agus Martowardojo, Minister of Transportation Budi Karya Sumadi, Minister of Communications and Informatics Rudiantara, Member of the Board of Commissioners of Tirta Segara Financial Services Authority, Head of Toll Road Regulatory Agency (BPJT) Herry Trisaputra Zuna , and banking directors.

Aribowo was reluctant to explain further about the meeting. The meeting began at 14.00 pm, and is scheduled to finish at 16.00 pm.

Executive Director of the Policy and Supervision Department of BI Payment System, Eni Panggabean before the meeting said the meeting with the Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs will discuss the progress of the payment system process on the toll road.

Prior to the full implementation of electronics on October 31, 2017, the government planned to implement non-cash payment systems in some areas.

At the end of September 2017, BPJT plans 60 percent of total national toll service payments are already using non-cash. Then, only at the end of October 2017, 100 percent of payments on tolls are targeted already using non-cash.

However, this electronics plan is not smooth running. Ombudsman Indonesia received a complaint from two elements of the community regarding the 100 percent plan for toll electronication payments.

Members of the Ombudsman, Dadan S, previously proposed that not all toll gate doors serve only non-cash payments.

He gave an idea, at least in every toll gate, there is at least one toll gate that still receives cash payments.

"The rules of paying non-tickets should not seem to force," said Dadan some time ago. (ant/frida astuti)
