A friend got his fast tag through Paytm and it looks like all you need to do is to recharge your Paytm wallet - there is no specific wallet just for fast tag. And that makes a lot of sense too. I have my fast tag from icici and need to explicitly recharge. But Paytm is something I anyway use all the time so would have been easier to simply use Paytm.

I have loaded my Paytm account with Rs 500. But how does this amount go to the Fastag, is there an automatic debit when the balance is low?

Immediate activation. You get an SMS in 24 hours saying the tag is assigned and active, post that they ship the tag.

Ensure enough balance in PayTM "wallet" to cover the toll charge(s).

Any and all tolls debited to PayTM FasTag account (which has 150/- balance) will get automatically credited from the wallet account and maintain the 150/- balance in the FasTag account.

Thank you mjumrani, hope to see the image; I was worried about the city safety functioning and rain water ingress. Hence I didn't do that earlier.

Got a PayTM fastag and tested it twice at the Pondicherry Toll plaza. The lane earmarked for fastag vehicles was not able to read my tag. The gate closed and redirected me to join the next lane midway where the operator read it with a scanner and it worked

Is there any reason why the system in the lane is unable to read it? I have pasted the tag at the top right corner of the windshield in a WagonR VXI

As far as my knowledge goes, Paytm Fastag directly takes money from your Paytm wallet. Paytm Fastag maintains Rs 150 in its main account and when ever you use some amount from this balance (By passing through a Fastag enabled toll), the amount will the transferred from Paytm wallet to the Fastag wallet automatically, to maintain Rs 150 as Fastag balance.
All in all what I need to say is, just keep the required amount in your associated Paytm account and that's it.
