NHAI operates FASTag, and since the implementation of FASTag program on the National Highways toll plaza, the transportation efficiency has increased multifold. This change has also ensured a faster turnaround for the movement of goods and travellers passing by.
FASTag comes with several benefits, such as;
• Saves Fuel and Time
It saves fuel and time by cutting down the time spent in the toll plaza. The tag reader can easily recognize a vehicle with the FASTag tag and therefore, they don't have to stop at the toll plaza for the cash transaction. Therefore, saving both time and fuel.
• SMS alerts for transactions
FASTag users can keep track of all the transactions since they get all the updates on their registered mobile number via SMS alerts. Since everything is available on their mobile phone, they don't have to keep track of everything. Everything is just a click away.
• Online recharge
FASTag users can quickly recharge their tag accounts through online recharge via debit cards, credit cards, NEFT, or Net Banking. The process of online recharge is as easy as doing your mobile recharge. There are no hassles, and it is easy to understand the process.
• No need to carry cash
It saves you from standing in the long queues at the toll plaza, and FASTag users don't have to carry cash with them for making toll payments. Taking cash can be a little hectic, with FASTag you have to make a prepaid recharge, and you are good to go as long as you have money in your account.
• Web portal for customers
FASTag makes it easier for its users to access their statement by merely logging in to the FASTag customer portal.
