FASTAG – Can we have multiple fastag for same vehicle?

If yes:

I want to use it for below purpose.
Some fastags are not working at tolls due to various reasons.
If we have backup fastag, it will be easy to use that without paying via cash.
Also, to utilize various fastag issuer’s discounts.

If no:

Is there any SPCIFIC reason that FASTG has to be only one per vehicle?
Is it due to IAS officers have defined the policy, since some of the IAS are dumb and not have that much intelligence ?

Edit:
I am interested in getting the second fastag from different provider. If the toll fastag scanner not able to scan the first fastag (provided by paytm) , then I just want to replace it with another fastag (provided by non-paytm).

Why cant I buy second fastag from other service provider and use it ?
Thats what I am interested to know.

The answer is No, you cannot have more than one tag for one vehicle.

If Yes:
People can take multiple tags and use it on other vehicles of bigger size
It may also be little messy for the premature fastag system to deal with multiple tags
Some of the crimes are also tracked via fastag, so multiple tags can open another gateway

Discounts will go away once the providers have enough customers base. IMO it is not a wise idea to take fastag in the name of utilizing offers.

For people who rarely use fastag, it doesn’t matter with discounts, if 50INR cashback comes, fine, even if not, the journey has to be taken. And for people who uses it frequently, the discounts may not matter again here, because that could be their need.

This may not be applicable.
I keep it just below the rear view mirror by hand, just few seconds before the toll gate.
I can still use my fastag with another vehicle, but never tried.

I understand from your reply that one can apply for multiple fastags but the first one will be active and rest of the fastags auto-blocklisted.

What if, the first fastag doesn’t work due to various reasons and car owner could not make it working for months/years?

These r RFID tags, so if both are in the car then both will be debited at the same time, plus u need to stick the tag of the windscreen…. So if both have balance you will end up paying double

If one needs convenience, and also use the available offers in market, may be one will be okay with multiple debits. Or the backup tag should be safely secured inside an aluminum case.

Do they scan fastag or the number plate at toll plazas?

The RFID scanners scan the tag, and the person sitting in booth manually scans the car type and the deducted fee, to ensure people are not misusing the tag and vehicle type.

I don’t think that unless your previous tag is disabled you can have a new one. I had sold my car and simply removed my tag but did not disable it, as it was from my common pool of hdfc tags linked to my single account. The new owner was refused new tag by ICICI saying that car already has a working fast tag and it needs to be disabled. He got new one after I disabled older one.
