Know what the FASTag and how does it help you?

AUG 22 (WTN) - If we tell you that if your vehicle passes on the National Highway and without having to stop at the toll plaza, it is only possible to pay toll tax automatically from your FASTag account through a tag, because by not stopping at the toll plaza, you will save a lot of your precious time and at the same time you will get rid of the disputes on the toll plaza including the hassle of change money for toll tax. Yes, something similar is going to happen in the country from December 1. What is the whole matter? Let us explain this in detail.

For your information, let you know that the Ministry of Transport and Highways has written to all the states to provide space in the RTO (Regional Transport Office), so that the point can be made for the sale of FASTag. This is why, because the Government has decided to accept toll payment from FASTag also on the toll plaza of all national highways from December 1 this year.

Now you may be wondering what is this FASTag? How does it work and how you can pay toll tax on the toll plaza from your FASTag account? So for your information, let you know that FASTag is a device connected to the windscreen of the vehicle. The device is based on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology. When this tag is placed on the vehicle, and even if the vehicle is moving, it automatically gets recorded on the toll plaza at which time the vehicle passes through the toll plaza.

As soon as the FASTag-bound vehicle passes through the toll plaza, there will be reading of the FASTag-bound vehicle and the toll tax at the toll plaza will automatically be paid directly from the FASTag account. This will be possible, because FASTag is like a prepaid account which you can recharge at your convenience. That is, the vehicle will not have to stop at the toll plaza after FASTag bound in the vehicle. As soon as the vehicle with FASTag passes through the toll plaza, toll tax of the toll plaza will be paid automatically from the FASTag account on the corresponding vehicle. That is, the payment will now be done digitally on the toll plaza, cash transactions will be closed gradually.

For your information, let you know that from December 1, payment will also be accepted from FASTag on the toll plaza of all the National Highways. For this, all lanes of all the toll plazas of all the National Highways will be made FASTag lanes. We suggest that you also get FASTag installed in your vehicle as soon as possible and pay toll tax digitally at the toll booths, because if you pay toll tax at the toll plaza without FASTag, then you have to pay double toll tax. At the same time, to promote FASTag, the government is initially exempting toll tax on its use.

Actually, the Electronic Toll Collection System has been introduced in India by the National Highways Authority of India. This system was introduced in the year 2014. Taking this forward, now there is a preparation to implement it in the whole country. You can also get FASTag through a bank, or online again and it can also be recharged online from time to time at your convenience.

There are many arguments of the government behind the implementation of FASTag in the vehicles. First of all, using FASTag will get rid of traffic congestion on the toll plazas. On the other hand, using FASTag will help curb the disputes for toll tax on the toll plazas. Also, while paying toll tax, the drivers will get relief from other problems, including lack of exchange money.
