Due to the early deadline of FASTag rule being implemented, the toll plaza and even the private banks which were providing these FASTags seem to have finished with the stock. It is also being noticed that some of the toll plazas are still not equipped with the FASTag technology.
Due to the unavailability of FASTag cards the dates for the mandatory implementation of FASTag rule has been extended.
It was earlier decided that from December 1 all the heavy vehicles and four wheeler must have a FASTag to cross the toll plaza. However, with such a big amount of FASTags to provide the vehicles seems next to impossible, NHAI has decided to extend the date till December 15.
Meanwhile, there was little confusion among the driver regarding the FASTag technology some of which were cleared in this week. It was earlier said that the card should have a deposit of rupees 300 and a balance of rupees 200. Now the NHAI has cleared the confusion. It stated that the card must have rupees 400 that includes both deposit and the charges.
