The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) has introduced the ‘One Vehicle, One FASTag’ initiative, aimed at improving the overall experience for users of the national highway system.

Key Points of the Initiative

Mandatory Transition

Under this initiative, users with multiple FASTags or those linked to a specific vehicle are required to discontinue earlier FASTags issued by their respective banks.

Deactivation of Previous FASTags

All previous FASTags will be deactivated or blacklisted after January 31, 2024, even if they still have a valid balance. This ensures that only the latest FASTag remains active.

KYC Process Implementation

FASTag users must register the most recent FASTag by completing the ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC) process, aligning with Reserve Bank of India (RBI) guidelines.

Reasons Behind the Initiative

Addressing Violations

NHAI initiated this step in response to reports of violations, such as the issuance of multiple FASTags for a single vehicle and the distribution of FASTags without complying with RBI’s KYC mandate.

Benefits of the Initiative

Improved Toll Operations

The ‘One Vehicle, One FASTag’ initiative aims to enhance the efficiency of toll operations, streamlining the process and providing a more comfortable journey for users of the National Highway.

Understanding FASTag

Electronic Toll Collection System

FASTag, operated by NHAI, is an electronic toll collection system introduced in India in 2014. It has a fixed validity of 5 years from the date of issuance.

RFID Technology

Utilizing Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology, FASTag facilitates smooth and seamless passage at toll plazas, eliminating the need for waiting or stopping.

Payment Convenience

Affixed on the vehicle’s windscreen, the FASTag (RFID Tag) enables users to make toll payments directly from their linked account, offering a convenient and efficient toll-paying experience.
