What is Fastag?

Fastag is a type of tag or sticker. It is pasted on the windscreen of the vehicle. Fastag works with radio frequency identification or RFID technique. This technique scans the barcode of the camera sticker on the toll plaza and the toll fee is automatically deducted from Fastag's wallet. With the use of Fastag, the driver does not have to stand to pay the toll tax. It is used to reduce the time it takes at the toll plaza and to make travel easier.
