Govt. extends deadline for FASTag till February 15, 2021

All cash lanes at toll plazas were supposed to be converted to FASTag lanes from Jan 1, 2021.

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highway (MoRTH) has extended the deadline for cashless toll collection through FASTag till February 15, 2021.

Earlier, the government had announced that all National Highway toll plazas would go cashless from January 1, 2021. All cash lanes at toll plazas were supposed to be converted to FASTag lanes.

At present, around 75-80% of all toll transactions are done through FASTag. All toll plazas have one cash lane on each side, while the rest are FASTag lanes. Any vehicle that enters the FASTag lane without a FASTag has to pay double toll.

The government also plans to introduce pre-paid touch-and-go cards for toll collection.
