New Delhi, Auto Toe Desk. From January 1, 2021, all new and old vehicles will not be allowed to pass through the stop plaza. Indeed, payment for vehicles can be made electronically with the help of Fastag and the government has been striving for this for a long time. Let us say that a lot of time is wasted in making cash payments from vehicle owners at toll plazas, as well as in case of traffic jams on highways. Fastags have been made mandatory since the new year to avoid all these problems.
With this decision of the Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MORTH), FFSTAG has been made mandatory for four wheelers to be purchased before December 1, 2017. The ministry has suggested that all four wheelers must be fitted with FFSTAG.
As per Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989, F.A.S.T.T.G. for registration of four wheelers sold before December 1, 2017. Let me tell you that a vehicle will not be exempted from toll tax without fastag at the toll plaza on the national highway. If drivers return within 24 hours and a fastag is affixed to the vehicle, the toll tax will be reduced by 50 per cent. At the same time, vehicles that are not picked up fast will have to pay double toll tax.
What is FASTag
Fasttag is a radio frequency identification sticker (RFID) mounted on a vehicle’s wind screen. Whenever you pass a toll plaza, the scanners installed there scan FASTag on your car’s windscreen and your payment is digitized. You do not have to stop at the toll booth because of this tag. This tag is mandatory on all cars sold after December 1, 2017. You can use this tag by recharging.
Can take FASTag from here
If you have not yet kept your four wheeler fast, then you can buy it from many government and private banks in India. These include State Bank of India (SBI), ICICI, Axis Bank, HDFC etc. With this you can get fastag from big petrol pumps.
How much is the price
If you are going to buy FASTag, you will have to pay Rs 100 for this. Let me tell you that with this, you also have to make a security deposit of Rs. 250. Explain that you must have a minimum balance in your linked bank account or digital wallet.
How it works
Scanners are installed at the toll plaza to scan the fast cars in your car. As soon as a vehicle passes in front of them, they immediately become active and scan the fastag sticker on the car. This takes a few seconds to pay the toll tax. The special thing is that you don’t even have to get out of the car for this whole process.
