FASTag is an electronic toll collection system being operated by the National Highway Authority of India. It relies on Radio Frequency Identification technology for making toll payments directly from the prepaid or savings account linked to it or directly toll owner. FASTag became mandatory for all vehicle owners from January 15 of this month. While it was expected to go into effect last month, it has seen multiple extensions. Government has said that over 7 million tags have been issued so far.
