FASTag is offered by the 22 different banks and can be bought either through the POS terminal of the toll plaza of the National Highway or from any bank branch. One can also buy it from an e-commerce platform like Amazon or a mobile wallet like PayTM.
To activate the FASTag one needs to submit the KYC documents (Aadhar Card and PAN Card) and Registration Certificate (RC) of the vehicle along with the FASTag application. After meeting the general requirements here are different ways to activate your FASTag account:
Self Activation: When you purchase a FASTag from a POS terminal it will be provided to you in an inactivated form. If you are purchasing the FASTag from the online platform then you need self-activate it. One can self-activate the FASTag by following the concept of DIY (Do-it-Yourself).
For self-activation of the FASTag, one needs to enter the vehicle details under the option ‘My FASTag’ mobile app (available on Google Play Store and App Store). Then, link the FASTag with the existing bank account using the app. You can add money to the prepaid wallet of the FASTag app. When you cross the toll the amount will be deducted from the wallet instead of the bank.
Activation of FASTag by Visiting the Bank Branch: You can buy the FASTag offline from any of the certified bank branches and get your FASTag linked with your bank account.
For more details about the FASTag and its activation, you can contact the customer care executive of the issuing bank.
