Now reduce the time you spend at toll plaza by avoiding payments in cash using the smart FASTag option. Many of you know about the application and recharging process, but do you know how to check FASTag balance. Let's get to know more about it in this article.
Every vehicle is liable to pay money at toll stations before going onto a national highway. One of the biggest problems toll plazas create is traffic congestion as people still use cash for paying the toll amount. Thanks to the recent announcement by the Government to make FASTag as a mandatory toll payment method, the toll payment is now fast and easy.
FASTag is an online toll payment facility that uses Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) enabling automatic deduction of toll charges when a vehicle passes by the plaza. You don't have to wait in the long queue; you can pass through the FASTag lane, the toll station workers read the tag and deduct the fee accordingly. While FASTag has gained its popularity recently due to its compulsion, you may know how to recharge it, and many may not be aware of how you can view the balance. Let's get to know how you can do FASTag balance check.
