FASTag In India Mandatory For All Vehicle Owners

The National Electronic Toll Collection (Fastag) program, a major initiative of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways and the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), has been implemented at Pan-India level to eliminate bottlenecks on toll plazas and ensure uninterrupted movement of traffic. The purpose of FASTag is to collect usage fees as per the notified rates using radio frequency identification (RFID) technology.


Deadline: In order to promote digital payments and increase transparency, the Ministry has ordered all National Highways to be declared as “Fastag lanes” from 1 December 2019, while one lane (in each direction) will be hybrid. It has been made mandatory to pay online for FASTag from 1 December 2019. It was decided to start the trial of the FASTag order on some identified National Highways from 1st November 2019 and it is gradually moving towards all the toll plazas.

Penalty: According to the notification of the Government Gazette, if any vehicle is entering the “FASTag Lane” without FASTag on the National Highway Toll Plaza, it will have to pay double the fee applicable for that category of vehicle.

Benefits of FASTag

The biggest advantage of using FASTag is that there will be no need to stop on toll plaza. No one needs to keep cash with them due to the convenience of payment. Paper is also less used on toll plazas if FASTag is used. There will be less pollution because of the absence of long queues of vehicles. Many types of cashback and other offers are also available on FASTag.

My FASTag App

NHAI has also announced that one can download My FASTag App to find out the nearest sales point or visit the website or call the National Highway Helpline number 1033. National Highway Authority of India/IHMCL has developed UPI recharge facility through My FASTag App for recharge. FASTag can also be recharged through NetBanking, Credit / Debit Card, UPI and other popular modes of payment by visiting the respective bank’s portal
