For the uninitiated, FASTag employs RFID (Radio-frequency Identification) technology to deduct toll charges as the vehicles pass by the toll plaza. This is time-saving as vehicles need not stop to pay cash for the toll payment, thereby making it easier for everyone.

Notably, it is simple to use FASTag as it is similar to mobile wallets. You can reload the same whenever you want and pay for the toll via these tags. The electronic toll collection tags are available through different service providers such as Paytm, banks, fuel stations, etc. You can also buy FASTags from Paytm, Amazon India, toll plazas across the country, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, and more.

To purchase these tags, you need to carry ID proof, address proof, and vehicle registration documents. Already, the NHAI (National Highways Authority of India) has requested banks to provide FASTags for free. In the meantime, there are some attractive deals for those looking forward to upgrade to FASTag.
