If your car does not have a fastag, then you will have to pay double toll tax on the electronic toll plan. The government said that this has been done to promote tax payments through digital mode. This will reduce the waiting time and oil consumption and enable you to enjoy driving on the highway without interruption.
Charge for fastag
FASTag is an easy to use, reloadable tag that enables automatic tax payment at the toll plaza and allows you to pass on the highway without stopping for any cash transaction. There is a one-time charge of 200 rupees for fastag, 100 rupees reimbursement fees and 200 rupees refundable security deposit.
Need to keep minimum balance in FASTag wallet
Let me tell you that last month, NHI had abolished the requirement of minimum balance in FASTag Wallet. NHAI took this decision to ensure the movement of traffic at the electronic toll plaza without interruption. If users have positive amount in Fastag account or wallet, then they will get approval to go through the toll plaza.
