With the implementation of Electronic Toll Collection through FASTag from 15th December 2019, sale of FASTags has picked up substantially. Over 1.15 Crore FASTags have already been issued, with more than 1 lakh being issued every day.
With the transaction number crossing 30 lakh, the daily transactional worth of Electronic Toll Collection has crossed Rs 52 crore.
In order to simplify the recharge of FASTag, the Government of India has recently included BHIM UPI app amongst many other modes of recharge. It has resolved the issue of recharge of FASTag through any of the UPI registered banks.
Implementation of FASTag is one step in the direction of providing safe, smooth and seamless journey to commuters on National Highways.
