Welcome To FASTag Services
FASTag is a simple to use, reloadable tag which enables automatic deduction of toll charges and lets you pass through the toll plaza without stopping for the cash transaction. FASTag is linked to a prepaid account from which the applicable toll amount is deducted. The tag employs Radio-frequency Identification (RFID) technology and is affixed on the vehicle’s windscreen after the tag account is active.

How FASTag Works ?
FASTag is affixed to the windscreen of the vehicle and is linked to a prepaid account. Toll payments are made through RFID, as the vehicle drives through the toll gate, which means you do not have to stop at a toll plaza on your journey. The prepaid FASTag account will be debited for the transaction which makes payments easier.
Why you need FASTag right now ?
Another big reason for you to go electronic is that if you enter a FASTag lane without a FASTag, you’ll be required to pay double the toll amount. The government has also made FASTag mandatory for acquiring third party insurance for your vehicle. To incentivise its popularity, the government seeks to transform FASTag into a multi-utility payment tool. Looking at the benefits and how the government is bringing it into prominence, opting electronic toll payment and FASTag are easily on their way to becoming a social norm or custom. As studies of behavioural economics explain, once an activity becomes part of social norms, people see beyond its benefits. Just like following a queue or respecting a “No Smoking” sign, having a loaded FASTag account before hitting the highway is on its way to become an essential practice.
