FASTag by Karur Vysya Bank

FASTag is the brand name for the RFID-enabled tag that allows for electronic toll collection at Toll Plazas. The Tag is a reloadable RFID Tag that may be attached to a wallet and used to pay tolls without stopping at toll booths. The tag enables users to travel nonstop through a dedicated FASTag lane at toll plazas, and the automated scanning of the RFID tag deducts toll charges from the linked prepaid account without the need to stop for a cash transaction.

After the tag account has been activated, the tag is placed to the vehicle’s windshield. The electronic toll collecting system was developed by NHAI, IHMCL, which is part of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, Government of India. NPCI provides payment and settlement services under the NETC brand (NATIONAL ELECTRONIC TOLL COLLECTION). This form of technology is widely used and has been adopted in Western countries such as the European Union and the United States, as well as advanced East Asian economies such as Singapore.
