FASTag KYC update: If you are planning to take your vehicles on highways, then we have an important update for you. To avoid inconvenience, ensure your Fastag KYC is updated as soon as possible. All FASTags with incomplete Know Your Customer (KYC) will be deactivated or blacklisted by banks after January 31 even if having enough balance, the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) has announced. The move aims to prevent the issuance of multiple FASTags for a single vehicle, the distribution of FASTags without KYC verification, and the intentional non-fixing of FASTags on vehicle windscreens.

About FASTag

FASTag is an electronic toll collection system that simplifies the payment of toll taxes at toll plazas while also monitoring vehicles that travel swiftly on highways. It automatically deducts the toll amount from the associated account.

FASTag operates using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology, which facilitates the collection of toll tax payments on the go. The system involves attaching a tag to the vehicle's windscreen, which is linked to a bank account or a prepaid card. When a vehicle equipped with a FASTag approaches a toll plaza, a scanner recognises the tag and deducts the appropriate toll amount from the linked bank account or prepaid card.
