How can Users Manage FASTag on Paytm App?

FASTag eliminates the need to stand in long queues and jams at toll plazas across the country. This helps the traveler to save a lot of time, money and fuel. All that a user needs to do is buy a FASTag from a provider like Paytm, stick it to the windshield of their vehicle and get going!

In this blog, we will learn how a FASTag actually works, how you can buy/use it on your Paytm account and how you can manage FASTag on your Paytm app.

How does the FASTag Technology work?

  • The FASTag is linked to the user’s prepaid account, such as Paytm, and is then fixed to the windscreen of his/her vehicle
  • With the use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology, the toll amount is deducted from the linked prepaid account, such as a Paytm wallet
  • The technology works such that the vehicle does not have to stop at the toll gate; the amount gets deducted as the vehicle passes through it
  • Your prepaid FASTag account, which could be your Paytm wallet, for instance, will then be debited for the transaction; which eventually makes users’ travel easier and comfortable
