What is FASTag?
The FASTag is an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) sticker that is applied to cars. In recent years, it has quickly grown in India as a means of collecting toll taxes. The next time you travel through the toll plaza, you may avoid paying cash by sticking it to the window of your car. Your tag is scanned by the FASTag scanner, and any associated accounts have money taken right out of them.
From January 1, 2022, FASTag installation on cars will be required under the Ministry of Road Transport’s Central Motor Vehicles Rules (CMVR), 1989. M and N class four-wheelers and bigger vehicles that transport either people or commodities are required to abide by the regulations of the Ministry of Road Transport.
