Answer by Jai Parimi:
- 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. You will have to use the lanes demarcated for FASTag.
- The tag has a validity of 5 years and after purchasing, you only need to recharge/ top up the tag as per your requirement.
- FASTag is presently operational at Mumbai-Delhi (NH-8). More toll plazas will be brought under the FASTag program in the future.
