FASTag mandatory for all four-wheelers from January 1, 2021

The Road Transport and Highways Ministry has said that use of FASTag will be mandatory in all four wheelers including the old ones from M and N category of motor vehicles (four wheelers) sold before December 1, 2017 through amendments in CMVR, 1989, from 1 January, 2021.

According to the notification issued by the government, ”As per Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989, since 2017 the FASTag has been made mandatory for all registration of new four wheeled vehicles and is being supplied by the vehicle manufacturer or their dealers. It has further been mandated that the renewal of fitness certificate will be done only after the fitment of FASTag for the transport vehicles.”

FASTag is a simple to use, reloadable tag which enables automatic deduction of toll charges and lets you pass through the toll plaza without stopping for the cash transaction. FASTag is linked to a prepaid account from which the applicable toll amount is deducted. The tag employs Radio-frequency Identification (RFID) technology and is affixed on the vehicle’s windscreen after the tag account is active.

FASTags were made mandatory for all vehicles, private and commercial, from December 15, 2019. It was made compulsory earlier this year at all national highway toll plazas to reduce cash handling and decongest national highways. There would be no waiting at the plazas and would also save fuel.
