Starting from today, toll plazas across country will have one dedicated FASTag lane. The FASTag, an RFID tag, will be available both online and offline through banks and Common Service Centres. Two mobile applications were also launched by NHAI in the month of August for ease of obtaining FASTags.
The government has also mandated that new vehicles being sold with effect from 1st October 2017 will be affixed with active FASTag. The FASTag Partner App will facilitate more than 6000 dealers in the country to access a single platform and activate the FASTag at the time of delivery of vehicle.
NHAI has also launched massive awareness campaign to make road users aware of the FASTag and its benefits. NHAI officers have been tasked to visit toll plazas personally and ensure operationalisation of single dedicated Electronic Toll Collection lane.
