What are FASTags?
From December 1, all the lanes of the toll plazas will be declared as “FASTag lanes” and the toll payments will be through a FASTag device affixed on the windscreen of the vehicle. The vehicle owner will be charged double the normal fee at the toll plazas on the National Highways if the vehicle does not have a FASTag. The toll amount is deducted directly from an account linked to the FASTag. The use of FASTag is expected to remove traffic congestion at the toll plazas. It will be applicable across the country.
