Are you tired of waiting in long toll queues during your travels? Say hello to FASTag, India's electronic toll collection system. FASTag uses radio frequency identification technology to enable automatic payment of toll fees, making your travels hassle-free. Let's dive deeper into what FASTag is and how it works.
How does FASTag work?
FASTag uses radio frequency identification technology (RFID) to enable the automatic payment of toll fees. It is a small, prepaid tag that is affixed to your vehicle's windscreen. As your vehicle passes through the toll plaza, the RFID reader scans the tag, and the toll fee is automatically deducted from your linked account.
How to get a FASTag?
Getting a FASTag is a simple process that can be done through multiple channels. Here are the steps to get your FASTag:
Collect the required documents: You will need the Registration Certificate (RC) of your vehicle, KYC documents like an Aadhaar card, PAN card, or driving license, and a passport-size photograph.
Choose an issuer: You can get a FASTag from any of the 22 issuer banks authorised by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI).
Apply online or offline: You can apply for a FASTag online through the issuer's website, or offline by visiting a Point of Sale (POS) location at a toll plaza or an authorised bank branch.
Pay the issuance fee: The FASTag issuance fee varies based on the issuer, but it is typically around Rs. 100�150. You can pay this fee online or offline while applying for the FASTag.
Activate the FASTag: Once you receive the FASTag, you will need to activate it by linking it to your vehicle's registration number and adding funds to the FASTag account.
Once your Fastag is activated, you can use it for seamless and hassle-free toll payments.
