Fastag is the innovation to smooth the flow of vehicles on National Highways and a safe way of paying toll tax considering the COVID-19 catastrophe. So let’s deep dive into more details to check what is FASTag and how you can get Fastag for second hand car.
FASTag is a smart electronic toll payment system used for vehicles and toll plazas. The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has launched an online system for the issue of Fastags on the e-NHA portal.
The Fastag is issued free of charge for vehicles owned by Central/State Government departments, Statutory bodies, Cooperative Societies, Universities, Autonomous Bodies, or Corporations wholly owned by the government. As of Dec 2019, the government has made it mandatory for all vehicles to be equipped with FASTag.
FASTag is an AI-powered tool scanner that uses machine learning to eliminate barriers to cash payment. FASTag tags are installed on the vehicle’s screen and linked to the prepaid account for the specific vehicle, making using it at toll booths easy.
Then, as you pass through the tolls, the tag is scanned, and the toll amount is automatically deducted from your Fastag account.
The FASTag puts on the windscreen of the car, which is equipped with RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Technology) technology. It allows an RFID scanner to automatically deduct toll charges and send an SMS notification to the car owner.
