They say, ‘Once you get wanderlust in your blood, you get it for life’. If you are an explorer who needs a road trip every now and then, you must know that the easiest way to zip through tolls is via FASTag.
Recently, Union Road Transport and Highways Ministry declared that from 15th February 2021, all the lanes of the toll plazas of national highways should be ‘FASTag Lanes’. Therefore, any vehicle, (both personal and commercial) that is not fitted with FASTag or doesn’t have a sufficient balance will have to pay double the fees while crossing a toll plaza.
8 Amazing Benefits of Paytm FASTag
