FASTag is an election toll collection system in India that is operated by the NHAI (National Highway Authority of India). It uses RFI (Radio Frequency Identification) technology for transferring toll amounts directly from the added money in the FASTag. It was supposed to bring down the traffic jams at the toll plazas.
The Government of India made it mandatory for all vehicles to get FASTag in 2019. This move brought a lot of banks and e-commerce companies to sell FASTags via their different platforms. Paytm also started selling FASTags and provided some other features that no other bank or companies were providing which attracted a lot of customers. It lets users link FASTags to their digital accounts so that they don’t have to add money to their FASTag time after time and toll will be directly paid from their account.
How FASTag works?
You have to affix the FASTag to your vehicle’s front window. When your vehicle reaches the toll plaza, you don’t have to stop to make the payment. Just drive through and the toll amount will be directly deducted from your account linked with the FASTag. However, if you are not using a FASTag, you will have to pay double the toll amount for every trip and also have to waste your time.
So, if you are also a Paytm FASTag user and looking to add your FASTag directly to your bank account, then, we might be able to help you. If you are one of those few who still haven’t bought it yet, then also we will explain to you how to buy a new one from Paytm. Let’s get started without any more delay.
