How to manage FASTag Account using the eToll app?
September 25, 2021
To reduce traffic congestion at toll plazas and make the toll collection smooth, the Indian Government has made it mandatory for vehicle owners to install a FASTag - for contactless toll payments. Let’s get to know how you can manage the FASTag with the help of an ICICI Bank eToll app.
While travelling across states, you may encounter toll plazas, where you have to pay toll money. This is nothing but the road tax that the Government collects to maintain our road and highways. However, the long queues at toll plazas have often been the reason for traffic congestion. But with the launch of FASTag, the Indian Government aims to make toll payment collection, effortless and smooth.
What is a FASTag?
A FASTag is an easy to use, rechargeable tag that needs to be affixed on your vehicle’s windscreen. With the help of this tag, the toll money gets automatically deducted and you do not have to worry about cash. The tag is embedded with RFID technology to ensure that the relevant vehicle charges get deducted from your prepaid account. With effect from Feb 15, 2021, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has made it mandatory for all motorists to get a FASTag affixed.
If you’ve found recharging and managing the tag difficult up until now, it has been made easier with the help of ICICI Banks eToll app. The eToll app by ICICI Bank lets you manage your FASTag account-related tasks pretty much effortlessly.
