No fastag yet. You could pay by debit/credit card including contactless NFC cards or via NICE's prepaid e-pay card.

I suspect they are trying to avoid it as much as possible seeing the delay and the slowness in trying to adopt Fastag.

Maybe there is some unreported/unaccounted money here which cannot continue once they move to Fastag.

With every kind of transaction moving toward contact-less type, not sure why government is not enforcing fastag usage here. Being the most expensive toll route in India, it is strange that they are still staying away from Fastag.

That is because, i think it continues to enjoy the privilege of being a private road and the government will not interfere.

There is something fishy for sure, because I do not believe that it may take this long to implement fastag. NICE was meant to go the fastag way during December 2019 I think.
