Are you tired of waiting in long queues at the toll plaza? Do you want an easy way to pay tolls? Then FASTag is the solution for you. FASTag is an electronic toll collection system that automatically pays tolls without human intervention. In this article, you will learn how to activate your FASTag in India for a better highway travel experience.
How can I activate my FASTag?
Follow these four easy steps to activate your FASTag:
Buy a FASTag: Purchase your FASTag from a certified bank or a toll plaza. You can also buy it online from the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) website. Once you activate your FASTag, it will be linked to your vehicle's registration number. You will also need to recharge it periodically to pay for toll charges.
Submit Your KYC Documents: To activate your FASTag, you have to submit your KYC documents to the issuing bank or agency. This is mandatory as per the guidelines issued by the Indian Government. The KYC documents include your vehicle's registration certificate, driving license, and a passport-size photograph.
Link Your Bank Account: After submitting your KYC documents, you must link your FASTag to your bank account to enable automatic toll payments. You can link your FASTag to any bank account that is a part of the National Electronic Toll Collection (NETC) program.
Activate Your FASTag: Once you have completed the above steps, your FASTag will be activated. Now you can start using it to pay for toll charges. Your FASTag is a passive device that works on radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology. The toll plaza scanners can detect it and automatically deduct the toll from your linked bank account.
How can I recharge my FASTag?
After activating your FASTag account, you have to recharge it for toll payments. Here's how you can recharge your FASTag:
Through the Bank: You can recharge your FASTag account through your linked bank account using net banking or mobile banking app. You can also visit the bank's branch to add money to your FASTag account.
Through the Park+ app: You can also recharge your FASTag account through the Park+ app in a seamless way. It also allows you to track your toll transactions and view your account balance.
