What is Fastag for vehicles and how it works
FASTag has an unlimited validity as per the announcement made by NHAI. In order to promote the use of FASTag among the vehicle owners, 7.5% cashback offer has been introduced. In a number of toll plazas, there are exclusively dedicated lanes built for the vehicles fitted with FASTag.
In January 2019, some state run oil companies like IOC, BPCL and HPCL have signed MoUs that make it possible to use FASTag system while making purchases from petrol pumps.
FASTag lanes are increasing rapidly across a large number of toll plazas in the country.
The government of India has announced that FASTag will be made mandatory for all vehicles from December 1, 2019. Those vehicles that have not moved to the FASTag system will have to pay double the toll charges as per the present announcement.
