FASTag deadline extended till February 15

The Ministry of Road Transport has pushed the deadline for 100% collection of toll charges on the National Highway (NH) network to 15th February via FASTag.

Presenlty, the share of transactions by FASTag is hovering nearly 75–80%. In a communication to NHAI, the ministry has stated that from 15 February, the highway authority can get the necessary regulatory requirement to ensure 100% cashless duty collection. To discourage cash transactions at the toll plaza, all lanes are except one in each side. Dedicated “FASTag lanes” and any vehicle entering these lanes without FASTag are liable to pay double the normal toll fee.

Earlier, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said, it is useful for the passengers as they will not need to stop at the toll plaza for cash payment. This also saves time and fuel. FASTags was launched in 2016, and the four banks together issued nearly one lakh of them. By 2017, their number rose to seven lakhs. Over 34 lakh FASTags were released in 2018.
