FASTag Must From Monday, Pay Twice The Toll Fee If You Don't Have It

New Delhi: The automatic toll plaza payment system FASTag will become mandatory from tomorrow midnight, the centre said today in a statement. Those who don't install FASTag in their vehicles or have a tag that does not work will have to pay twice the fee for the category of the vehicle they are driving.

To ensure smooth transition to the FASTag system, the government said all fee lanes in toll plazas on National Highways will be able to read the tags.

"Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has decided that all lanes in the fee plazas on National Highways shall be declared as FASTag lane of the fee plaza w.e.f midnight of 15th/16th February 2021.Therefore, as per NH Fee Rules 2008, any vehicle not fitted with FASTag or vehicle without valid, functional FASTag entering into the FASTag lane of the fee plaza shall pay a fee equivalent to two times of the fee applicable to that category," the government's Press Information Bureau said in a statement today.


The government said the complete migration to FASTag will help promote fee payment through digital mode, reduce waiting time and fuel consumption, and provide for a seamless passage through fee plazas.

The Transport Ministry had mandated FASTag in "M and N" categories of vehicles. "M" category stands for a vehicle with at least four wheels used for carrying passengers. And category "N" stands for a vehicle with four wheels used for carrying goods as well as passengers.
