Conclusion

Owning a FASTag allows you to drive on Indian roads with ease as it prevents you from having to make cash payments each time you cross a toll plaza. This is particularly useful as it allows you to save on time as well as fuel. The long lines associated with cash payments at tolls used to result in vehicles wasting fuel while they waited to cross tolls. Since FASTags have been mandatory since February 2021, the number of vehicles queuing up to make these cash payments has declined. This is because the RFID technology present in FASTags enables cashless transactions to occur. If funds within a FASTag wallet begin to decline, it is possible to recharge them with ease on platforms such as Bajaj Markets.
