The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has announced that a dedicated FASTag lane will be ensured at 48 toll plaza on the Delhi-Mumbai and Mumbai-Chennai corridors from June 20 in a bid to promote cashless payment at toll plazas.
 
The NHAI has also decided to provide FASTags to existing monthly pass holders by absorbing the one-time cost of the tags. And to facilitate purchase of FASTag by road users, Points of Sale (POS) on 23 Toll Plazas will be made available on these corridors.  Out of these, 19 POS are already working and 4 will be added within a week. 
 
The NHAI will also organise various events and activities to raise awareness on the benefits of FASTags. It will address bulk customers through transport and truckers associations to promote efficient and economical movement of passenger and commercial traffic on these high traffic density corridors.
 
 The FASTag cashless payment mechanism was rolled out on toll plazas on national highways by the authority. FASTags offer near non-stop movement of vehicles through toll plazas and convenience of cashless payments of toll fee with nationwide inter operable Electronic Toll Collection Services.  FASTag is operational on more than 325 toll plazas on National Highways across the country.
