Bank of Baroda FASTag Introduction

Bank of Baroda FASTag is an easy-to-use, reloadable tag that enables you to pay toll charges electronically from a prepaid wallet, at more than 480 toll plazas across the country. FASTag was introduced with the objective of reducing congestion in toll plazas, thus saving enormous amounts of time and fuel for its users.

FASTag uses Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to provide contact-less toll collection system at all National Toll Plazas. With an active FASTag affixed on your vehicle’s windscreen, you can cruise through toll plazas without stopping for cash transactions. These FASTags can be pre-loaded with money and used to pay for your vehicle toll payments electronically. When the vehicle passes through the toll gate, the RFID reader at the toll plaza receives information about the vehicle and the toll amount is deducted automatically from the FASTag wallet, thus saving valuable time & money for the users.

FASTag is presently operational at 400+ toll plazas across national highways. The system is inter-operable and the same FASTag can be used across all toll plazas under the National Electronic Toll Collection (NETC) program. Planning is underway to include more toll plazas under the ambit of FASTag.

The National Electronic Toll Collection (NETC) system was launched by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and the Indian Highways Management Company Ltd (IHMCL) to enable vehicles with a FASTag (RFID) to cruise through the Toll gates. Bank of Baroda, in association with National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), has partnered with the project for the issuance of FASTag for Vehicles.
