FASTag by Saraswat Bank

FASTag is a toll payment tag that employs RFID technology to make toll payments straight from the account associated with it. It is attached to your vehicle’s windscreen and allows you to drive past toll plazas without having to stop for cash transactions. These tags, known as the ‘FASTag,’ will have dedicated lanes at Toll-Plazas known as the FASTag. It’s the best choice for a stress-free trip down national routes.

Saraswat Bank is a participant in the NPCI (National Payments Corporation of India)-managed National Electronic Toll Collection (NETC) initiative, which follows NHAI (National Highways Authority of India) and IHMCL criteria (India Highway Management Company Limited).
