Recommended Posts

How it works?

  • NHAI has enabled Fast tags on some of its toll booths across India.
  • Fast tags has dedicated lanes at the toll booths.
  • Once you buy a fast tag they will provide you a sticker which you will be sticking on your vehicle wind shield.
  • You can recharge your fast tag account on the regular basis depending on your travel. It is like a prepaid card.
  • Gates automatically opens when your car pass through the fast tag lane.

Advantages:

  • No need to carry cash.
  • ​On-line recharge.
  • No need to wait in the long queues.
  • Saves fuel and time.
  • Advantage during the holiday season.
  • Dedicated Fast tag lane.
  • You will receive a text message showing the amount deducted from your fast tag.

Disadvantages:

  • Not implemented across all the toll booths.

Good information guys.

Currently there are about 350 toll booths which accepts the fast tag.

By the end of the year 2016 most of the toll booths accept fast tag.

Anyone bought Fast tag over here? If so please let me know if it is worth it.:D

I read some where that they are providing 10% discount per recharge, If it is true then it is an excellent move by the National Govt.

I tried to register online.

I have filled the details and submitted the form.

Fast tag need to be collected at the nearest toll booth. It is not sent via courier. Money should be paid while collecting it.

I tried the SMS method now. Lets see if they can get the fast tag directly to my home.

You don't need ICIC bank account for this facility. Anyone can apply for it.

You can avail ICICI Bank FASTag just by sending an SMS & our executive will call you within 48 hrs. SMS - ITOLL(Space)Pincode(Space)Name to 5676766. Example ITOLL 400051 Kumar

Guys finally I got a call from ICICI representative.

He informed me all the details related to Fast Tag. He also asked me; how many Fast Tags required.

During the conversation with him, I got to know that a single Fast Tag cannot be used on different cars. It should be different for different cars.

After a long wait ICICI Agent showed up at my office(today).

Following are required

  • Passport size Photo.
  • Bank Check (500/- per car)
  • Address proof photo copy.
  • Vehicle Registration card photo copy.

He took few signatures. He has given us a small demo on, How the fast tag works. Later he said Fast Tag will be delivered to my address in 15 to 20 days :shock:

Reason given by him for the delay, they will map the car data to the Fast Tag.

I felt the whole process is very old. But we do not have any other alternatives.

Wait game begins again.:angry:

Did anyone use it?

How is the real time experience?

When I was travelling between Bangalore to Hyderabad all the fast tag lanes are filled with normal vehicles.

Even I made cash payment and passed from that lane.:P

On some tolls fast tag lanes are blocked with barricades.

 Somehow that detector failed to scan the tag and we made cash payment.

 

I think position of the tag must be in the middle of the front mirror to work properly. Did anyone else try fast tag?

 

If so please let me know the experiences with it.:)

Proper detection is still an issue.

 

Toll guys are suggesting to stick the fast-tag on the centre(near rear view mirror), some are suggesting to stick on the left side (away from driver side).

 

My fast-tag is on right side. It wont get detected half of the time.

 

I tried to remove, but if I remove it wont work. 

 

Need to get new sticker.

Quick update.

My fast tag is not working properly due to detection issues.
I have applied for the new fast tag using PayTM


Following is the procedure:

1.Buy a Fast tag via Paytm app. Price 500/-

3. Once you send the details, Fast tag will be dispatched to your Paytm delivery address

4. Once the Fast tag is dispatched, your Paytm will show Fast tag recharge section

Informative post, thanks to all the contributors. I will wait for some more time to get a fast tag for my Tiago. I see a lot of issues like tag not scannable, long general queues in fast tag lanes etc., Planning to wait at least until tag scanning issues are resolved / get better.

Most of the issues are resolved with the new fast tag.
Old fast tag has detection issues, many people (like me) applied the sticker on the corner.
It should be in the middle for proper detection.

Some relief.

ICICI process is too bad.

Credit card application is much easier than fast tag.

Nice move by Paytm.

 

My ICICI fast tag is working fine, Hyderabad to Bangalore section is breeze.
