Benefits of Using FASTags

Most people are well aware of the implementation of FASTags on various National Highways in India. FASTag is an electronic toll collection system, operated by NHAI (National Highway Authority of India). Based on the radio frequency identification technology, FASTag is affixed on the windscreens of the vehicles. In simple words, these are prepaid rechargeable tags for toll collection. As they do not have an expiry date, they can be used as long as they are not tampered with and are readable at the toll plaza.

Working of a FASTag

These are implemented for an easy and convenient journey on highways, without any waiting time for tolls. Vehicles which have FASTag enabled on them, do not have to stop on the toll gates as charges are deducted from the bank on a prepaid basis, while the vehicle is moving. It is all done electronically under the National Electronic Toll Collection program. This means that drivers do not have to stop their vehicle for making transactions at the toll booths.

FASTags are issued by 22 certified banks and through various channels at National Highway toll plazas and at also select bank branches. The list of these banks can be found online. Some of the known and renowned banks are:

Axis Bank
