How To Get A FASTag Account For Your New Vehicle?


FASTag is a simple Radio-frequency Identification (RFID) technology that can make electronic toll payments. It is attached to the vehicle’s windscreen and allows you to pass through toll plazas nationwide without waiting in line for cash transactions. When your car approaches a toll plaza, the tag is read electronically, and the amount gets automatically deducted from your FASTag account.

To make a FASTag recharge, load money into your linked Airtel Payments Bank account/wallet using the Airtel Thanks app. Following successful loading, a minimum balance amount will be set aside for FASTag and used when you cross a poll. Thus, saving you the time and fuel you would have used to wait in lines.
