The deadline for mandatory use of FASTags at toll plazas is closing in. Starting December 1, you will need a FASTag to make toll payments on national highways (NH) across India. The FASTags employ Radio-frequency Identification (RFID) technology which automatically deducts toll charges as your vehicle passes through the toll plaza. By having the tag, you won’t need to stop for cash transaction, making the process easier. The tags are simple to use, just like mobile wallets and can be reloaded whenever you want.

The electronic toll collection tags are available via different providers, including banks, Paytm, petrol pumps and more. You can buy FASTags from Amazon India, toll plazas across India, Paytm, or from banks like ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank and more. Do note, to be able to buy a FASTag, you will need to carry your ID and address proof; along with the vehicle registration documents. The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has already requested all banks to offer FASTags for free, but only a few have implemented. Here is a look at deals.
