What are the benefits of using FASTag for toll payments?

City Union Bank Fastag

FASTag was introduced with the objective of reducing long waiting time at toll plazas. This in turn helps to save a lot of fuel and time for vehicle users. Since the payments are electronic, this allows for higher transparency for the government with regards to the toll collections.

  • Avoid long queues at the Toll Plaza: When your vehicle approaches the toll plaza, the tag reader installed in the toll gates reads your FASTag and automatically deducts the corresponding toll charges from your tag wallet. This greatly reduces the waiting time in every toll plaza.
  • Forget carrying cash for Toll payments: The toll amount is directly deducted from your wallet account removing the need for carrying cash for toll transactions.
  • Saves time and fuel: FASTags enable you to zip through toll gates without having to wait to make transactions. This saves enormous time and money.
  • SMS alerts for each toll transaction: Users get instant SMS notification for every toll plaza transaction carried out on their tag account. This enables the user to keep a tab on their account balance.
  • Easy recharge options: Users can conveniently recharge their tag account online or at any of the POS points at toll plazas. They can use a credit card, debit card, Netbanking or UPI apps to make payments.
  • Online portal for tag holders: City Union Bank FASTag users can create an account on the online portal to manage their tag account without any hassles. They can check various things like tag balance, transactions, and account information on this online portal.

About City Union Bank FASTag

City Union Bank is one of the designated banks authorized to issue FASTags to its customers. CUB FASTag program is part of the National Electronic Toll Collection(NETC) initiative rolled out by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), under the guidelines of the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and the Indian Highways Management Company Ltd (IHMCL).

FASTag is a tag sticker that uses Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to provide a contactless toll collection system at all National Toll Plazas. With an active FASTag affixed to 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.

CUB FASTag affixed vehicles can cruise through 460+ Electronic Toll Plaza across National Highways. Users can make use of the demarcated ETC FASTag lanes at the toll plaza and get the toll fee directly deducted from their FASTag wallet. This has saved an enormous amount of time and fuel to all its users. They also need not worry about carrying cash for the toll payments.

The NETC 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.
