If you travel by road frequently or are plannng a road trip, you now need to have FASTag with you. With effect from 1 December, there shall be no collection of cash at Toll Plazas, instead FasTag will be used for the collection of the toll fee. FASTag is an electronic toll connection device attached to the windscreen of vehicle to enable drivers to drive through toll plazas without having to stop. FASTag uses radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to enable direct toll payments from a moving vehicle. The toll fare is directly deducted from the bank account linked to FASTag. It will not only encourage cashless payments at toll plaza, but also decongest national highways.

FASTag may be purchased from over 28,500 Point-of-Sale (PoS) terminals. It may be purchased online on Amazon and by visiting websites of different member banks such as SBI, ICICI Bank, Axis bank, Paytm Payment Banks, HDFC Bank, IDFC First Bank.

SBI FASTag can be recharged online through credit card, debit card, net banking and IMPS.
