FASTag Implementation Deadline Extended Again: How To Buy And Recharge It?

What are FASTags?

FASTag is an initiative introduced by the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) in association with National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) for making automated payment deductions at toll plazas using prepaid rechargeable tags that work on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology.

How do FASTags work?

Normally affixed to the vehicle's windscreen, a FASTag enables payment of toll with just a momentary slowdown. When the vehicle reaches the toll plaza, a reader will detect the chip on the tag and deduct the toll amount from the bank account or prepaid wallet linked to the FASTag. These tags can be linked to bank accounts or prepaid wallets or UPI-based accounts.

Ways to buy FASTags

FASTags can be bought at toll plazas, certified banks and also online (Amazon or Paytm).


You can purchase bank-neutral FASTags at toll plazas or through online mediums. These can be activated by entering vehicle details in the 'My FASTag' mobile app available for Android as well as iOS users.

You can link this FASTag account to your bank account or the NHAI pre-paid wallet facility or another wallet of your choice, to make payments towards tolls.
