The Government of India has taken a step towards reducing traffic snarls at toll plazas by introducing a digital system of toll collection known as FASTag. The National Highways Authority of India operates this electronic toll collection system, which uses Radio Frequency Identification technology to collect toll payments directly from a user's linked account to the toll owner's account.
To promote digitalization, the government has made FASTag mandatory for all private and commercial vehicles. However, it is essential to maintain a sufficient balance in the FASTag wallet to drive through an electronic toll collection (ETC)-enabled lane at a highway toll plaza.
In this article, we will guide you on how to check your FASTag balance and recharge your account through online mode.
