These days, we all live for convenience! Getting things done digitally within seconds has become a part of our daily lifestyle. And we want the same when we commute. Who wants to wait in long queues at the Toll Plazas when you can easily pay your Toll digitally by simply doing a FASTag recharge!
What Is FASTag?
If you still don’t know what FASTag is, we’ll tell you all about it. As a part of the National Electronic Toll Collection (NETC) initiative, FASTag was introduced as an automated toll deduction tag. To put it simply, it is a reloadable digital tag that automatically pays your toll when you cross a Toll Plaza.
So now, you don’t have to wait in long queues and waste both – your time and fuel only to pay Toll in cash. Besides that, the Government of India has also made it mandatory for everyone with four-wheelers to use FASTag, in the absence of which, you will have to pay double the toll amount.
How Many Toll Plazas Are LIVE With FASTag?
Since its introduction in India in the year 2014, FASTag has transformed the way toll tax is collected in the country. And currently, we have approximately 1025 Toll Plazas across the country that are LIVE with FASTag. So, all you have to do is do your FASTag recharge online and pack your bags for that road trip you always wanted to go. Because with FASTag you can travel freely anywhere in the country, from J&K to Kerala, without worrying about stopping for Tolls.
