IDFC FASTag is a new-age contactless toll collection method. IDFC First Bank FASTForward is a compact reloadable card that enables automatic deduction of toll charges from the respective bank account attached with the FASTag on the vehicle as one drives through the toll plazas on national highways. The IDFC bank FASTag online service facilitates cashless transactions, checks the balance online, and helps keep the long queues from forming at the toll plazas. More importantly, it does not require the FASTag holder to travel to the bank branch for such small services.
To apply for IDFC Bank FASTags, customers need to link their prepaid accounts with the FASTag. In the process, they will be required to add money to their e-wallets. After activation, a FASTag sticker is affixed to the vehicle's windscreen. The tag readers at the toll plazas employ Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to read the information stored in the tag. When the vehicle drives through the dedicated FASTag lanes at the toll plaza, the relevant amount will be automatically deducted from the customer's linked account.
Issuance charges of the IDFC Bank tag are ₹ 100 across all vehicle categories, including all applicable taxes. Other Charges are mentioned in the table:
|Vehicle Description||Vehicle Class||Tag Deposit||Threshold Amount|
|Light Commercial Vehicle||2||Rs.500||Rs.150|
|Van/Jeep/Car/Tata Ace and similar mini light commercial vehicle||1||Rs.200||Rs.100|
