FASTag Wrong Deductions- Complaint & Get Refund

FASTag Wrong /Double Deductions Complaint Number Online

What is FASTag?

Authorized and operated by the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI), FASTag is an electronic system for paying highway tolls. It is a rechargeable card that can be glued as a sticker on a vehicle’s windscreen. It employs RFID technology to make payments directly from the customer’s linked bank account without stopping at the toll plaza.

How did the wrong deduction happen from the FASTag account?

Generally, for all toll transactions, the toll plaza authority/system requests that the bank debit the amount due for the tag. FASTag ensures automatic deduction of all toll charges. However, in some rare cases, the toll plaza deducts more than the applicable amount. In such cases, the bank would raise a chargeback on your behalf to recover the money.

According to a Mumbai-based activist, disputes over wrong FASTag deductions at toll plazas arise in several cases because of the delay in receiving transaction SMS.

  • More money is deducted than the applicable charges.
