Fastag is an RFID (Radio frequency ID) which is designed to work at Toll plazas in order to reduce the waiting time at tolls for fee collection. These look like sticker labels. When pasted onto a vehicle, this vehicle can pass through the toll in a designated lane without stopping for fee collection. This tag can be recharged like a cell phone SIM card and toll fee gets automatically deducted from the tag account when passed through a toll.
You basically need the following to register a tag for your vehicle.
1. Registration certificate of your vehicle
2. Your ID proof
3. Your Address proof
4. Photo of Vehicle
5. Photo of yourself
6. A cell phone number
7. Email Address
8. Fatsag Registration Fee
Yes, you are right. For now, atleast one lane on either sides of a toll plaza is designated for fastag customers.
After you buy fastag online and start using it, If the detector at toll plaza doesn't automatically detect your fatsag, the toll incharge will stop your vehicle and scan the fastag using a hand detector. This is a rare case but there are slight chances that you might be stopped if the detector at toll lane doesn't work.
