IHMCL FASTag has successfully signed up over 90, 000 active members for FASTag online services. You must ask what is IHMCL? It is the Indian Highway Management Company Limited. In the recent reports, the IHMCL has displayed 100% target completion in the distribution of FASTag to the people in India.
Here’s a fun fact, do you know? On any given day in India, there are approximately 1.2 million motor vehicles that drive down the road.
Can you imagine if each of these vehicles is stopped for 5 minutes per day for offline toll payment on toll plazas? Well! Without a doubt, such a system had been leading India towards the country that wastes 30-40% of fuel on toll plazas combining all vehicles. What’s the solution? Don’t worry! The Government of India has found one, all you need is sticking to it.
The solution is IHMCL FASTag. For the reader’s information, FASTag is an RFID technology complemented e-toll collection device. RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification.
To summarize, a toll plaza roof-scanner catches the radio frequency, scans the FASTag installed at the vehicle, and deducts a payable amount for passing the toll via the customer’s/passenger’s/driver’s prepaid bank account. Simple, isn’t it?
