What is FASTag?

A FASTag is a prepaid rechargeable tag service that allows the driver to make automatic payment for tolls, without having to stop or wait in a queue. This not only saves the time of the driver but also ensures that every vehicle that passes the toll is scanned and accounted for. An activated FASTag, which is installed on the car’s windshield, uses Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to communicate with the scanner which automatically deducts the amount from the user’s bank account.

How do I recharge my FASTag?

It can be recharged via cheque, UPI, debit card, credit card, NEFT or Net Banking. However, recharging the FASTag through a different medium will incur additional charges.
