Fino Payments Bank FASTag Introduction

FASTags were introduced with the sole objective of easing congestion at toll plazas. The aim was to reduce the cost of fuel and long waiting time at toll plazas by enabling electronic toll payments. National Electronic Toll Collection (NETC) Program governed by National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and Indian Highways Management Company Limited (IHMCL) introduced FASTags enabling seamless movement of vehicles through toll plazas on most National Highways across the country.

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.

Applicants can register for FASTag through the Fino BPay App or at Fino & BPCL locations.

  • One tag for country wide use: 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.
  • 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 recharge their account.
