Electronic toll collection systems have revolutionized the way we pay tolls, providing convenience and efficiency for commuters. Among the leading providers in India, SBI FASTag and ICICI Bank FASTag have gained significant popularity. Here, we will delve into a comprehensive comparison of these two services, examining their coverage, user experience, recharge options, fees, and customer support.
How does FASTag work?
FASTag contains a chip and antenna hidden under high-grade paper layers. The tag is linked to the customer's prepaid account. When a vehicle with an activated FASTag drives through the dedicated FASTag lanes at a toll plaza, the device readers scan the information stored in the tag using RFID technology. The applicable toll charges are then automatically deducted from the linked account.
