It is important to have balance in your FASTag account, every time you cross a toll booth across the Indian National Highway. This is because, if a user drives through the FASTag-enabled toll plaza without having sufficient balance in his FASTag account, he will have to pay twice the toll tax amount as a penalty for not using the FASTag.

Buy Paytm FASTag and Never Recharge your FASTag again!
Unlike other banks that require you to recharge your FASTag every now and then, Paytm only requires its users to add money to their Paytm wallet in order to process FASTag transactions. If you link your FASTag to your Paytm wallet, the toll tax amount will directly be deducted from your Paytm wallet as and when you cross a toll booth.
Moreover, when you buy the Paytm FASTag, it automatically gets linked to your Paytm wallet. You don’t need to take any additional steps to activate/start using your Paytm FASTag.
Using the Paytm wallet for your FASTag-related transactions will make it easier for you as you won’t have to recharge your FASTag again and again. All you need is a balance in your Paytm wallet and the toll tax amount would directly be deducted from your wallet as and when you cross a toll plaza.
Having a single Paytm wallet for multiple needs will help you manage your balances and keep a detailed track of all your travel-related expenses, whether fuel, purchases at departmental stores, or expenses made at toll plazas.
