To further augment electronic toll collection, the government on Saturday said it has made FASTags mandatory for all four-wheelers including old vehicles from January 1, 2020.

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has issued a notification for the promotion of digital and IT-based payment of fees through FASTags.

The government has issued a notification “making FASTag mandatory to be available by January 1, 2021 in old vehicles also.

As per Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989, the FASTag had been made mandatory for registration of new four wheeled vehicles since December 1, 2017 and is being supplied by the vehicle manufacturers or their dealers.

The government also said that a valid FASTag is mandatory while getting a new third party insurance through an amendment in FORM 51 (certificate of Insurance), wherein the details of FASTag ID shall be captured. This shall be applicable w.e.f. April 1, 2021.

The move is a major step for ensuring the payment of fees is done through the electronic means only. Also the vehicles pass seamlessly through the toll plazas.

FASTag is a prepaid tag that enables automatic deduction of toll charges. Furthermore, it lets the vehicle pass through the toll plaza without stopping for the cash transaction.
