How To Apply And Buy FASTag Sticker Online?
FASTag has become a mandate for toll collection across state borders and highways in India for an easy commute. The electronic toll collection system is based on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology and was announced back in 2017 for commercial use in the country. Once a vehicle passes through a lane supporting the FASTAg RFID reader, the toll money is automatically deducted from the user's linked wallet or bank account.
In the initial days, one had to apply for a new FASTag by visiting a nearby POS (point-of-sale) booth. Most of the times, toll plazas have a setup comprising small booths for the same. Long queues have been witnessed at the FASTag registration centres. However, you can now apply for FASTag online as well.
This will save you from the hassle of visiting a registration centre and waiting in long queues. If you haven't applied for a FASTag yet, it's a high time you should consider trying to apply for one. It wouldn't just save your time, but money as well. Just for reference, you will be charged extra than the actual toll fare if your vehicle doesn't have a FASTag sticker. Check out the steps on how to apply for a FASTag online:
