Mandatory Fastag for all 4 wheelers new year onwards

Received notification that Fastag will be mandatory for all 4 wheelers, effective 1 January, 2021.

I didn’t need one but if they are mandatory will need to get one.

DD consensus is ICICI fastag best. Currently ICICI running a promotion till 30th November where they will give INR100 Amazon voucher with every new Fastag. (Offer: https://www.icicibank.com/campaigns/fastag-amaz...)

I fail to understand if I do not use toll roads, what is the point of Fastag?

Bro, you don’t understand the message. Fastag shall be compulsory for all 4 wheelers for crossing any toll plaza on highways. Without fastag, no 4 wheeler can pass the toll plaza by paying in cash.

This doesn’t mean that every 4 wheeler had to buy this, even if you don’t travel on highways having toll plaza

Cause if things are not mandatory or forced, we will never to 100% on fasttag ever…. On Mumbai Pune express highway, I had to wait atleast 15 minutes on each toll plaza cause people love to pay toll in cash/credit card……

Each fastag has a mandatory minimum interest free deposit. Now multiply by the number of 4 wheeler in India. You get the quantum of funds involved when it becomes mandatory for all.

My friend told me that money which was deducted through fastag was more than cash counter at some plaza on a route he was frequently travelling in Maharashtra. So he removed Fastag. Anyone have similar experience?

Hell yeah, how did I miss that? It’s all about money, honey sunglasses

@leonardodavinci interesting! Maha toll plazas seem to dislike Fastag
