New Delhi:

FASTag, which offers the convenience of cashless payment along with benefits like - savings on fuel and time as the customer does not has to stop at the toll plaza, is available free of cost until February 29. If you are yet to purchase FASTag, then apply for it now. FASTags are being issued by 22 certified banks including Axis Bank, ICICI Bank, HDFC, SBI, Yes Bank, IndusInd Bank, Yes Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank, Bank Of Baroda, and others. FASTags can also be availed by various channels such as Point-of-Sale (POS) at National Highway toll plazas. Interestingly, FASTags are also available on e-commerce platforms such as Amazon. If you already purchased a FASTag from a particular bank, you could add money to it using only that bank’s app or website. However, a few weeks ago, RBI announced that UPI, cards and other payment methods can be linked to FASTags, making recharges easier.

This means that PhonePe, Google Pay and BHIM can be used to recharge your FASTag. At the moment, only a few FASTag issuing banks have been listed on PhonePe and Google Pay. The remaining banks will likely be added in the coming days. News Nation brings you the steps to recharge the FASTag by PhonePe, Google Pay and BHIM App.
