Helping four-wheeler owners in smooth passage through tolls, the FASTag system has made life convenient for everyone. It has been made mandatory for all four-wheeler vehicles to have by the Government of India (GOI). This electronic toll system helps you cross all toll plazas located on the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) easily.
Once at the toll plaza, you simply get your FASTag on your vehicle scanned electronically. Post that, the toll tax gets deducted from your digitally linked wallet. This eliminates the need for cash payment and makes the toll-collection procedure quick, efficient and transparent.
