What is FASTag?

FASTag is a device that employs Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology for making toll payments directly from the prepaid account linked to it. It is affixed on the windscreen of your vehicle and enables you to drive through toll plazas, without stopping for cash transactions. The tag has a validity of 5 years and after purchasing, you only need to recharge/ top up the tag as per your requirement.

Once, the tag is scanned, a prepaid account linked to the tag is automatically debited for the corresponding amount. The linked account can be topped up/recharged as required.

    Why are the toll rates different for different vehicle categories?

    This categorization is primarily based on the size and load they carry and damage done to the road and type of use (commercial/personnel) of a vehicle.

    How do I stick my FASTag on my car?

    Now that you have got your own FASTag, you need to fix it in your car or vehicle to start using it through the toll plazas. Here are few simple guidelines to fix your FASTag, as given by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI).  

    • Remove the adhesive liner from the sticker.
    • Install on the top middle of the windshield, below to the rear view mirror.
    • Press the sticker gently on the windshield, but do not press hard as it may get damaged due to excessive pressure.
    • Always keep the adhesive side facing outside.

    Please note:

    • Once the FASTag sticker is pasted, do not try to remove it or reposition it. The FASTag is designed in such a way, that when it is removed or repositioned, it will no longer work, as the RFID gets damaged.
    • Do not paste the FASTag on a dirty/wet glass surface.
    • Do not use a cello tape or any supplementary adhesive to fix the FASTag, as it may prevent the RFID sensors from reading the FASTag properly.
    • If the original adhesive is insufficient, return the FASTag and get a new one.
