FASTAG.. Mandatory or Optional

Recommended Posts


I would like to know the implementation of FASTAG as Mandatory or Optional. I think there is no such GO passed that FASTAG is Mandatory (still trying to figure out some concrete information).

Per my opinion it should be an optional, you can take FASTAG and pass through that lanes or you can  pay by cash and go through non- FASTAG lanes.

Government is announcing to be as Mandatory but seems no proper implementation in this regard.

Even in USA you will see both options in all Toll plaza (Cash/Cashless).


Above said is just my thought/opinion/assumption and would like to know concrete information regarding the same, please share from your perspective.

I am not sure about the GO but without FasTag you have to pay double the charges by cash. There is going to be only one lane for cash payment.

You cannot pay by cash in FasTag lanes. If no FasTag on your vehicle they make you go thru cash payment lane only.

I have traveled to Shirdi last week and was smooth passing thru the tollgate using ICICI FasTag.

I have seen many commercial trucks using FasTag.

I found it to be safe and easy way of payment system.

True, in USA they have both options.
