Even if you had already handed over the documents, getting tag by Wednesday is bit doubtful. Best option would be like Parag suggested to visit any toll booth and get the same issued over the counter.

I dont think they are responding to the SMS requests.

BETL booth near Electronic city issues the same over the counter I have heard.
Earlier there were posts about Airport toll booth and Nelmangala also were distributing the same, not sure about the same though.

Regarding the tag portablity, you should be getting different tags for each vehicle. It is possible to get different tags with same account too, this way it is easier to manage the payments. However, I am not sure if anyone has received the same though.

That said, you can carry the tag in different vehicles and get it scanned. There is no check on if the vehicle you are driving is linked to the same tag.

Understood that you decided to bit the bullet finally from Bangalore traffic rant thread. Since you drive to EC, you can also try from BETL office for tag.

Thanks Suhas! A friend went to ICICI Bommanahalli only after BETL office declined to serve his request due to server issue on yesterday too. Else, we both were planning to drive to Shantigrama toll for this .

BETL office near the HPCL station is always easier for me as I can go, finish the process and leave from there via NICE. ICICI bank is a pain as I have to drive below BETL and return back to NICE to reach home (Trust me I am done with driving inside city after using NICE these days). Needless to say, parking is easier at BETL office than ICICI bank too!

So yes, I will check at BETL office on Monday if I am unable to visit ICICI tomorrow as I am anyway driving to EC tomorrow for a friend's new car delivery.

I submitted some sort of application form on the FASTag website. I plan to visit one of these toll booths tomorrow. ICICI Bank branches don't work, is it?

There are no Branches where you can submit, its one and only, Bommanahalli Branch of ICICI.

Apart from this, you have the following POS locations:

Please call the PoS locations and check before going. Half the time either the operator or the machine is not working!

And exactly what I did yesterday only to find that the number given was wrong .

There is absolutely no point driving all the way to the POS location without the homework!

Do they give you the sticker right away or will it be delivered a week later like someone had posted a few pages back? And do you have the timings/contact number of the BETL office?

  • Passport Size Photo
  • Address Proof
  • ID Proof
  • Registration Certificate (RC) copy

A friend went there yesterday .....

A person would visit your address and install the RFID/Tag on your windscreen.
Parag Sir,

Am I sure of getting the FASTag at ICICI bommanahalli? Or do they also suffer from server issues? I'm looking to go sometime early next week and I don't want to run around for this.

TIA

I think they are also facing this server issue. My friend submitted the document yesterday and they informed him about some server issue and told him that it will take 7 days to activate the Fastag account/RFID.

But will they deliver the tag home after 7 days? I wouldn't want to travel again to Bommanahalli to get the tag.

I missed your question yesterday and Arun has already answered.

Yes, the tag would be delivered and fixed by the FasTag representative at your address. You need not visit the branch again.

Just to update, I didn't visit the Branch yesterday and after talking to Fusionbang decided to visit BETL office tomorrow to get one.

Will update here once I get it. As I learnt, if you buying at BETL, you get the tag right there.

I submitted my online application at this link. It gave me a reference number at the end of the submission.

Link for online application is:
https://www.icicibank.com/Personal-B...stag-faqs.page

I will still have to print the form and visit the ICICI Bomanahallo branch with all the documents + photo. Hopefully after this, the tag may be installed in a week's time.

If the car is not at home, will they come to office address and install it in Bangalore? Anybody know?
