Guys,

Need a clarification. I applied for fastag through ICICI branch. The bank executive collected all the paper work from me and I have received the account numner in sms. I am yet to hear from him on the tag.

However with the account number I was able to register and login to icici fastag site. Over here I see that my licence plate listed has a missing letter. Instead of KA51Pxxxx, it is showing as KA51xxxx.

How to get this corrected?
Better to contact the ICICI Fastag representative itself and get it corrected. You will have to make sure your car number is linked correctly to the Fastag RFID tag as well.

You can contact ICICI representatives at Bangalore branch-
  • Nagesh - 9986580842
  • Sandeep - 9513385794

    They would deliver the tag at your location and also would guide you on process of correction of entry.

I have had FASTag fixed to my car since April this year.
It works some times at toll plazas, most of the times I have to move the car forward and back a few times.

The issue is the scanners are not installed properly. In some toll plazas they could not get the implementation correct, so now they have someone with a handheld scanner so that toll collection can be done.

Tamilnadu road transport buses are fixed with FASTag and hence all the fixed scanners are positioned/oriented to scan for those, this makes the angle not correct for cars. This i have observed in tolls plazas of Tamilnadu.

From what I've read so far, this is an extremely useful option on highway trips. Has anyone used this on the Bangalore-Kerala route? Have there been any hiccups or issues?

The route I'm referring to is Bangalore-Hosur-Krishnagiri-Dharmapuri-Salem-Coimbatore-Thrissur.

At krishnagiri it is a free pass mostly

You can refer what TBHPIAN Bejoy updated in other thread

An update from the Bangalore Kochi trip.

Fastag worked at 7 out of 9 NHAI tolls.

Only Walayar toll (not listed as active toll on the website) did not have the system working though a dedicated lane is present, which is cordoned off. No manual scan device is available.

Trissur toll did have the automated system but could not detect the tag. Even manual scan did not work. I was told that the system is working and a couple of cars had already passed. The technician told that I have stuck the tag close to the tag from Mahindra(came with the car) and the scanner is reading it instead of Fastag. I had to pay cash finally.

Except Trissur toll, all had the etc lane cordoned off and allowed only cars with tags after checking visibly.

So, except Coimbatore bypass(non NHAI) and Walayar, all the tolls are a breeze now.

Thumbs down Re: FASTag: All you need to know about procuring & using it!

In this day and age when even a bank account can be opened with minimal steps on a mobile phone (DBS Bank), when aadhar based e-verification is a reality and where vehicle details are available in on online publicly accessible database,
why is this process so long and tedious?

Best part is you do not have to keep so many coins and toffees that they generally give back as change.

It worked all the way till Thrissur when I went to Kerala last Friday. It is manual scan at Dharmapuri, a phone in program at Paliyekkara (attendant calls and share the vehicle number etc) and you need to pay cash at Coimbatore L&T Bye Pass.

In Bangalore, I have seen cutting lanes and dodging into gaps is very common a practice, especially when the queues are long. Wondering if it would be a challenge to keep such tricksters off when I am forced to keep a 6 meter distance behind the vehicle ahead of me.

Fastag lanes have longer partitions between lanes compared to normal lanes. This means you can wait for car ahead to finish transaction without worrying about anyone cutting across lane.

However , be prepared for continuous honking from behind from non Fastag vehicles wondering why you are not moving ahead.

Is ICICI the only bank which issues the Fastag or do other banks issue it too?

Axis bank also provides. I took from ICICI, in my case they were willing to come and collect the documents. They came back to fix the tag to car. All this at my place. With Bangalore traffic, this worked better for me.

I got my Fastag last week before my trip to Pune. It took 4 working days for the tag to be ready.
I went and submitted the documents at the Bommanahalli branch of ICICI and collected it from there.
It worked in 70% of the tolls between Bangalore and Pune and also on Mumbai-Pune Expressway. In some tolls, the fastag lane was occupied by other cars and trucks and caused more delay than normal lanes.
But it did save a lot of time when they were letting in only fastag vehicles.
Still needs improvement and toll operators should ensure only fastag vehicles are allowed in dedicated lanes.
