    Double Toll Fee For Vehicles With Invalid And Non-Functional FASTags

    FASTags can be purchased from around 28,500 Point-of-Sale

    Vehicles with invalid or non-functional FASTags to be charged double the amount of the actual toll fee in India.

    This has been stated as per a recent circular which was released by the Ministry of Road Transport.

    The Ministry in a notification dated May 15th, 2020, for amendment in the National Highways Fee (Determination of Rates and Collection) Rules, 2008 stated that if the vehicle does not have a “FASTag” or vehicle is without valid or functional “FASTag”, enters a “FASTag lane” of the Fee plazas, then the vehicle should pay a fee equivalent to two times of the fee applicable to that particular category of vehicles.

    Earlier, a vehicle had to pay the double toll only if it did not carry a FASTag and enters the dedicated FASTag lane.

    However, now starting from December 15, the Centre has converted all lanes, barring one, on toll plazas to FASTag-only lane.

    FASTags can be purchased from around 28,500 Point-of-Sale locations which were set by various banks and IHMCL/NHAI including all NH fee plazas, RTOs, Common Service Centers, transport hubs, bank branches, selected petrol pumps, etc.
