A FASTag service enables the driver of the vehicle to not stop in toll booth to count cash to pay. HDFC Bank FASTag is a collaboration with the National Electronic Toll Collection (NETC), which aims to ensure smooth transportation through national and state highways. FASTag has become mandatory in our country from January 15. Those who still don’t have FASTag activated Id, they have to pay the double price as a penalty.
There is a lot of reason behind the government to forcefully activate it. Some reasons are:
- You need not to always remember about the carrying of cash of the exact amount required in the booth. Digital transactions are safer as you can monitor your account balance deduction as it sends a notification every time you make a transaction.
- Save time in the toll booth by not getting in the complications of cash counting.
- Every time you pass through a toll booth after the payment made at a national highway, you can earn a reward of up to 2.5%.
HDFC FASTag service is available in more than 420 toll booth. It has come up with helpline numbers for the ease of communication between customer and HDFC bank.
