Buy and recharge FASTag online
February 09, 2021
Keep driving and continue your journey on the road uninterrupted, thanks to the FASTag programme. With this simple solution, toll collection has become easier and smoother. FASTag is a brilliant initiative by the Government that aims to significantly improve the speed and efficiency of toll collection.
The all-electronic FASTag facility employs the use of an electronic Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tag attached to the windscreen of your vehicle. Whenever you drive through a toll plaza, the tag is scanned and the toll amount is automatically deducted from your account in a matter of seconds. This process is so quick that you don’t even need to stop completely at the toll booth.
How to apply for FASTag?
Given that the Government has mandated all toll plazas on national highways to make toll payments electronic, it’s essential that you get to know where and how you can apply for FASTag. To get your FASTag offline, you can visit a Point of Sale (POS) counter, which you’ll find at various toll booths, RTOs and petrol pumps, and register for it there.
