How FASTag Works?

Here are the steps where we will learn how does FASTag transaction works when it is initiated at toll plaza through RFID reader:

  • A vehicle will pass through FASTag lane where RFID device will capture FASTag details which includes ID of the tag, Class of the vehicle and TID which is sent to the bank for processing.
  • The bank will further initiate a request to NETC Mapper which will validate the tag details.
  • After the Tag ID is validated by NETC, the mapper will send details which are vehicle class, tag status and VRN. IF the mapper is unable to locate Tag, it will return a response that particular TAG ID is not registered.
  • Thus the bank will calculate the toll fare and a debit request is initiated towards NETC.
  • After that The NETC will forward the request to bank which has issued FASTag to debit from FASTag account of user.
  • Now the money will be deducted by the host and the user will receive an SMS alert. The host will also send the message to NETC.

This is how FASTag will deduct the money from your account and you can travel hassle free.

FASTag Blacklisted

If you pass through any toll plaza and your FASTag wallet is out of money, your FASTag wallet is usually blacklisted for 48 hours, if you use the FASTag lane for crossing the toll gate. Your FASTag account will only be reactivated with the intervention of NHAI helpdesk in case you are travelling. You can also call on NHAI customer helpline number which is 1033 for reactivating card.

Usually when a person buys a FASTag Rs 200 is added as a security deposit which can be used during emergencies. If in case you have exhausted your main FASTag wallet account, the amount can be deducted from the security deposit. And again when you will recharge your wallet, firstly money will get added as a security deposit which you have used and rest of the amount will get deposited in your main FASTag wallet.

How to Use FASTag?

Now we are aware of FASTag, we will see how the FASTag works when a vehicles enters toll plaza:

  1. First of all when your vehicle enters FASTag lane, RFID reader on the lane will auto detect your FASTag and deduct the amount from your FASTag wallet.
  2. You will get a confirmation receipt on your email and also an alert message on your phone linked with tag.
  3. Once the money is deducted from your tag you will get a green signal and you can successfully pass through the plaza without any hassle.

FASTag Common Problems

Everything has its pros and cons. Pros are already explained and now we will see what are the difficulties one can face while using FASTag.

Sometimes when you will pass your vehicle through FASTag lane, the RFID reader might not detect the FASTag of your vehicle.  You might need to move your vehicle little backward and forward and you must also ensure that FASTag is correctly placed on your vehicle so that it’s easily detectable.

If your FASTag is still not detected than a man on toll plaza will come with handheld RFID reader to detect your tag. There are some disadvantages of these hand-held devices:
