FASTag Service

FASTag is an electronic payment system that saves time at toll plazas. To use it, the team at Windshield Experts helps you ensure  the FASTag sticker is properly fixed on your car windshield. This article covers where and how   the FASTag should be placed, along with activation, recharge, and transaction tracking. Keep reading to learn the step-by-step process of fixing the tag at the optimal location for cashless toll payments on the go.

What is FASTag?

FASTag is an electronic toll collection system in India operated by the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI). It employs Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to enable automatic deduction of toll fees from the prepaid or savings account linked to the FASTag without requiring vehicles to stop at toll plazas.

Process we follow while Sticking the FASTag

  • Register the FASTag ID with your vehicle number to activate it before first use.
  • Ensure your FASTag account has sufficient balance for deductions. You can recharge it online via net banking, UPI, Paytm, etc.
  • Link the FASTag with a valid bank account for automatic recharges whenever the wallet balance goes below a threshold.

What are the Benefits of Using FASTag?

  • Saves time at toll plazas with no need to stop for cash transactions
  • No need to carry cash while travelling on highways
  • Get alerts on low balance to avoid getting stranded
  • Online recharges offer flexibility
  • Discounts/cashbacks offered at certain toll plazas

Documents Required for FASTag Registration

To get a FASTag account and tag issued, you need to provide the following documents for registration:

1. Registration Certificate (RC) of your vehicle

The vehicle's RC is required to link the FASTag with its registration number. It should contain details like registration number, chassis & engine number, owner's name, etc.

2. KYC documents 

As per Indian government norms, Know Your Customer (KYC) documentation is required for opening any bank account for financial transactions. So, you need to submit identity and address proof documents with the FASTag registration form. Some accepted KYC documents are:

  • Aadhaar card
  • Voter ID
  • Driving license
  • Passport
  • Utility bills like electricity, water, gas, etc.

3. Passport size photos

You need to provide a recently clicked passport-size photograph with the FASTag application form. This would also be used for identity verification.

4. Vehicle Documents

If your vehicle is under any bank finance, you may need No Objection Certificates (NOC) from the financing institution to get a FASTag.

Therefore, along with the application form, you need to submit your vehicle papers, KYC documents, passport photo and NOC, if applicable. The process is fairly simple and can be done completely online or at points of sale outlets of participating banks.
