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

I use the Paytm fast tag. When I sold my car I cancelled it through the app. If you can ask the dealer to contact the previous owner to do the same. You could maybe try Paytm through twitter.

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

My PayTM Fastag is again showing VRN Inactive/Blocked, while in PayTM app it shows as active. Due to this I'm unable to recharge using any APP. But recharge using netc upi handle works fine. I haven't more than 6000 in PayTM wallet (Full KYC) while the limit is 1000 per month. Quick Google search revealed there are lot of users face same issue with PayTM fastag

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

Hi guys,

I had a query regarding the cancellation of my Fastag.

My car met with an accident and was declared a total loss by the insurance company. I got the RC cancelled in Sept 2023 further to which the vehicle was lifted by the salvage buyer last week.

I now need to get the Fastag cancelled or de-link my car; could you please guide me with this?

Which company Fastag you have? It is better to call the customer care to know the exact procedure to cancel a fastag specially in your case. I used to have icici tag and could close it online (from their website and not the app) when I sold the car. But the process varies as some companies/banks may not provide online facility to cancel.

I finally got around to get the tag closure done for my Swift Dzire since it has been sold about 6 months ago. Here's a summary of the steps for closure of an ICICI Fastag:
  1. Login to your ICICI Fastag account on the portal and click "Close Account" link on the top right
  2. A dialog box appears (Screenshot available in quoted post above).
  3. Select the checkbox to Agree to the points mentioned
  4. A form appears and in the first section, all the tags linked to your Fastag Account Id will appear. Select the checkbox next to the specific tag/tags you wish to close.
  5. Next, enter the text in the "Reason for closing the account:" which is a multi line text box. I just entered "Sold the Vehicle - <Registration Number>"
  6. In the Document section:
    -Enter name of the person requesting closure
    -Select Id Proof type from the drop down (I selected Driving License)
    -Upload the document with Id proof (upload the image)
    -Upload Bank Passbook/cancelled cheque image
  7. Fill out the Bank Account Details section where you want the refund to be credited
  8. Click Close Account

A couple of messages then appear saying "Close request has been sent for approval" and another says "Fastag account will be closed in 12 days from the date of approval of the closure request".

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

I have stuck the Fastag sticker to the extreme top left of the windshield. Due to this, I face regular issues in toll booths where they cannot read the sticker sometimes.

I'm planning to remove the sticker from current position and place it at the top-center just below the dashcam.

Few queries related to this:

1) Can the current sticker be safely removed without leaving any stains?

2) How easy/difficult is it to get a replacement card? Will the balance also get transferred to the replacement card?

Other tag(s) in the vicinity, such as the vehicle manufacturer's RFID tag, parking tags etc cause interference and result in the communication getting timed out.

Contact your FASTag issuer, follow their instructions. Usually, it can be done by disabling the currently issued tag online, and then requesting a replacement tag that will get delivered. For banks, one can also get a replacement from certain branch offices where there will be dedicated personnel to help with the procedure. YMMV.

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

Has anyone here tried laminating the FASTag sticker & just keeping it as a card instead of sticking it on the car windshield? I don't want to stick another sticker on windshield. Also I don't travel outstation that much so holding up the FASTag on tolls wouldn't be much of a hassle.

What I have done is, applied it on a transparent Acrylic Sheet which you can get at any local stationary shops. Do note that it would be tough to cut the sheet according to fastag size since it can crack the whole sheet. I went to a hardware store whom I knew and he did it for me with a cutter. But once done it works like a charm. Have already done this for to two of our cars.

I use with transparent backing sheet and as-is without removing the sticker, they work just fine and never had any problem. Just don’t damage the rfid chip and it will work just fine.

I think I'll do this as well then. I have some cellophane sheet scraps leftover from a project, will wrap a piece around it & close up the ends with tape.

Don't use any thin sheet like cellophane, the tag will bend and the RFID chip may get damaged. Use acrylic sheet or a thick transparent plastic sheet - to give it credit-card like strength. The tag should not develop any folds during usage.

Hmm, thats why I was thinking of doing hard lamination, that will seal it & turn it into a plastic card. Just not sure if RFID chip will remain undamaged in that case. Will look into acrylic sheet then I guess.

Lamination uses heat and pressure, not advisable. The tag already comes with glue, you just need a stiff backing sheet like acrylic to stick it on.
