FASTag is an RFID passive tag that allows users to pay for tolls directly from their associated prepaid or savings/current bank account.
Now, Vehicle owners can say adios to serpentine queues by using their FASTag. All the 4 wheels and above vehicle owners are requested to purchase FASTag, so they can pass through the toll booth swiftly. Moreover, there are separate FASTag lanes for the people who have purchased FASTag for cars. Now users can commute from Point A to Point B without waiting in a long queue.
The IDBI bank will serve as the acquiring bank and will be in charge of toll collection for a period of seven years, and for its related processes for the different projects of toll plazas. Earlier, Officials from the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) were quoted in a PTI statement.
With effect from January 1, 2021, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways mandated the implementation of FASTag in the ‘M' and ‘N' categories of motor vehicles.
A motor vehicle with at least four wheels used for carrying passengers is classified as category ‘M,' whereas a motor vehicle with at least four wheels used for carrying goods, which may also transport people, is classified as category ‘N.'
