September 20, 2020
Paying at toll plazas with FASTag ensures you have an easy-going trip on National Highways. Read further to know more about how to apply for it and what documents are required to buy FASTag.
Travelling by road is convenient, especially when you have your own vehicle. While commuting on the toll road, every passing vehicle has to pay fees at toll plazas before touching the highway. Many customers prefer doing cash transactions until recently; since the FASTag solution was introduced. The solution reduces time when you pay in cash, and is also instrumental in ensuring the smooth flow of vehicles on National Highways. Moreover, it is a safe option for paying at toll plazas considering the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
FASTag is an electronic payment system that allows you to pass through the plaza without stopping for a cash transaction. The tag is linked to a prepaid account that employs a Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID). FASTag is fixed on the windscreen of the vehicle once it is active. The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways announced on <Dec 01, 2019>, that all vehicles must make toll payments through FASTag only as per its National Electronic Toll Collection (NETC) Programme.
