FASTag documents: Applicants must remember that FASTag will be issued following the verification of the original documents.
FASTag purchase: Still haven’t bought your FASTag RFID tag? From December 1, 2019 toll payments at NHAI toll plazas will mandatorily happen through the FASTag cashless system. Those who do not have the FasTag device installed on their vehicles will have to pay double the toll amount. The FASTag system comes with several benefits for its customers such as ease of payment, near non-stop movement of vehicles at toll plazas, and online recharge. FASTag is based on radio-frequency identification (RFID). The tag is affixed on the windscreen of a vehicle and when that vehicle passes through any toll plaza, the toll gets deducted automatically. The validity of a FASTag is five years. It is linked with a prepaid or savings account. After purchasing a FASTag, you need to recharge or top-up based on your requirement.
What documents are required to purchase FASTag?
To purchase FASTag, you need to submit a copy of the Registration Certificate (RC) of the vehicle and a passport-size photograph of the vehicle owner. Apart from these documents, you need to submit KYC documents as per the category of the vehicle owner. The KYC documents (ID and address proof) can be one or more from PAN Card/Driving License/Passport/Voter ID/Aadhaar Card (with address).
Applicants must remember that FASTag will be issued following the verification of the original documents. In case you are purchasing the FASTag from the toll plaza/bank branch/petrol pump, remember to carry your original documents while applying for FASTag. The representative of the issuer agency will fix the FASTag on the vehicle’s windshield. Any representative of the vehicle owner can also submit documents, information and purchase the FASTag.
