The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways of India has made FASTags mandatory for all vehicles. FASTags were introduced with a mission to reduce the traffic on the toll plazas and encourage cashless toll payments. With FASTags, commuters do not have to stop and pay cash at the toll plaza, which therefore saves a lot of time.

 

The government of India has certified 22 banks in the country to provide the people with FASTag accounts. One of these 22 banks is HDFC, which offers FASTag services to the people.
