The FASTag service is a cashless system that collects toll taxes electronically at toll plazas around the country. The NHAI collects them automatically with FASTag, which uses RFID technology and eliminates the need for the vehicle to stop at the toll booth. When four-wheelers approach the toll plaza/booth, FASTag assists in the automatic detection of the vehicles.
The user's prepaid account, which is a Paytm wallet, is linked to the FASTag, which is then attached to his or her vehicle's windscreen. FASATag assists in the automatic deduction of toll tax as the user goes through the toll gate.
Under the layers of fine paper on the Paytm FASTag are a chip and an antenna. The customer's prepaid account is connected to the tag. This rectangular card is affixed to the windshield of the car after activation. Radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology is used by the device readers at toll plazas to read the data contained in the tag. The installed scanners scan the data and debit the associated account for the necessary toll charges as soon as the vehicle passes through the designated FASTag lanes at the toll plaza.
With Paytm FASTag, you can pass through the toll booths without having to stop. More than 650 toll booths along India's national and state highways offer the FASTag service as part of the National Electronic Toll Collection (NETC) scheme.
The linked prepaid account or wallet is automatically debited for the toll payment. Driving outside of the city does not need carrying cash. The tags can also talk to one another. Multiple toll booths accept the same rechargeable tag.
