What is a FASTag and what are its benefits

It is a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology-based sticker that needs to be affixed on your vehicle’s windscreen. The toll booth will have the RFID reader to scan the FASTags. So, when you are driving on highways and cross the toll booth, the toll charges will be automatically deducted without any manual intervention. This way, you can cross the toll plazas seamlessly without having to stop. Also Read - Paytm traffic challan payments is now live in Maharashtra: All you need to know

The FASTag payment method will save time, and also do away with the need to carrying cash and change every time around. Just like mobile wallets, you will have to recharge the FASTag account for the amount to be debited at toll plazas. For every transaction, you will also receive an SMS. Even when you have low balance or when you load money, you will be notified about the same. Also Read - How to check E-Challan and pay traffic fine online

It is important to note that you will need certain documents to purchase a FASTag. The list of documents include vehicle registration certificate, passport size photograph, voter ID card, Aadhaar card, PAN Card or passport. It is important to note that the tag can only be used with one vehicle.
