ICICI Bank has announced that it has introduced the FASTag facility for payment of parking charges at the Mangaluru International Airport. This move will allow users to pay parking charges digitally and in a contactless manner, resulting in quicker movement of vehicles in the parking zone. The scanners installed at the parking zone will read the FASTag affixed on the windscreen of the vehicle, record the entry/exit time, and deduct the parking charges automatically.
ICICI Bank is the only bank to introduce the FASTag facility at the Mangaluru International Airport. Speaking on the partnership, Mr. Sudipta Roy, Head – Credit Cards, Payment Solutions & Merchant Ecosystem, ICICI Bank, said, “We are delighted to introduce FASTag based payment for parking at Mangaluru International Airport. This facility will improve the convenience of users by saving their time and reducing dependency on cash.”
ICICI Bank was the first bank in the country to launch FASTag on the Mumbai – Vadodara corridor in 2013. Since then, the bank has pioneered the usage of FASTag for payments at various national and state highway toll plazas and parking at airports, malls, business hubs, and tech parks across the country. In addition, the bank has introduced the facility at fuel stations so that users can avail the triple benefit of using one tag for payments for fuel, toll, and parking.
Customers of ICICI Bank can avail FASTag using the Bank’s digital channels such as internet banking, iMobile Pay app, InstaBIZ app, Pockets app, or by visiting the nearest branch. Users who are not customers of ICICI Bank can purchase the FASTag by visiting the website: www.icicibank.com/fastag, toll plaza sales office or the ICICI Bank FASTag sales office. FASTag can be reloaded with funds online using UPI and NEFT platforms. This move by ICICI Bank will not only improve the convenience of users but will also promote the adoption of digital payments and reduce the dependence on cash.
