FASTag to be available free of charge for 15 days

New Delhi: The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways announced today that in order to further increase digital collection of user fee via FASTag at NH fee plazas, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has decided to waive off the FASTag cost of Rs. 100 for NHAI FASTags between 15 and 29 February. Road users can visit any authorised physical point-of-sale location with a valid Registration Certificate (RC) of the vehicle and get an NHAI FASTag free of cost. NHAI FASTag may be purchased from all NH fee plazas, RTOs, Common Service Centres, transport hubs, petrol pumps, etc.

To search for the nearest NHAI FASTag point-of-sale locations, one may download the MyFASTag App, visit the IHMCL website, or call the 1033 NH helpline number.

The applicable security deposit and minimum balance amount for FASTag wallet shall, however, remain unchanged.

NHAI had earlier announced for free NHAI FASTag from 22 November to 15 December 2019 to encourage people to adopt FASTag.
