What is FASTag?

FASTag is an electronic toll collection system operated by the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI). FASTag is a passive device and it works on the principle of Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) technology which enables automatic deduction of the toll fee directly from the prepaid or savings account linked to it.

The tag is affixed on the vehicle's windscreen and information on it is passively read by the RFID reader at the toll plaza which enables cashless toll payments without requiring the vehicle to stop and wait in a queue.
