Mumbai : National Highway Authority (NHAI) in all toll plazas as of February 15 Fastag (FASTag) has been made mandatory. The plan is to get rid of the queues for vehicles at the toll plaza. However, due to technical difficulties, some people feel that time is running out. This has now received a new order from the administration. If there is money in the toll gate but it is not scanned, the vehicle must leave without paying.
A few days ago, poet and lyricist Sandeep Khare said on social media that he had a bad experience with Fastag. “The toll plaza staff stopped the vehicle because there was no FASTag scan on Sandeep Khare’s vehicle. Then a small machine tried to scan the tag. However, it didn’t work. After that, they told him that he would have to pay. A fine of 75 rupees and a fine of 75 rupees. ” fine too. Then the label was scanned. ” However, I wasted 10 minutes on all of this. Khare has asked the administration in question to find a solution. He also spoke about providing adequate training for these employees.
But now, even if there is money in the Fastag at the toll booth, if it is not scanned, the vehicle will have to be delivered without paying. Such a government order has been issued.
What exactly is FAStag? What benefits do you get?
FASTag has become mandatory in all toll plazas in the country as of today. Without FASTag, drivers will have to pay double the toll. But what exactly is this FASTag? How does it work? Where did you get it? Many have such questions. So Fasttag is a digital sticker. This sticker is attached to the windshield of the vehicle. This sticker is powered by Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology. With the help of this technology, the toll booth cameras scan the barcode on the stickers and deduct the amount of the toll from the FASTag account.
This fastag is used to pay tolls without cash transactions. Vehicles don’t even have to stop at the toll plaza to pay the toll. This saves drivers time, saves fuel and also helps reduce the hassle of traffic jams at toll plazas.
