FASTag system functioning smoothly after coming into force today

PIB
FASTags or prepaid rechargeable tags for Vehicle toll collection with automatic payment have come into force this morning. It became mandatory for all vehicles.

Talking to AIR News, Chief General Manager of National Highways Authority of India, Amarendra Kumar said, the system is working very smoothly. He said, now the drivers will not have to stop their vehicles at toll plazas to pay tax.

AIR correspondent reports that the National Electronic Toll Collection System was launched to provide for the collection of user fee through FASTag to ensure seamless movement of traffic.


National Highways Authority of India has equipped all fee plazas with Electronic Toll Collection System.

A FASTag uses radio frequency identification technology to enable direct toll payments from a moving vehicle. If anyone goes into an electronic toll collection lane without a FASTag, he or she has to pay double charges.
