FASTag is an electronic toll collection system, operated by the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI). The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) made it mandatory for every vehicle in December 2019. 

The tag attached to vehicle windscreens can be purchased online and offline - through issuer banks and from NHAI POS (point of sale), RTOs (regional transport office), petrol bunks, and transport hubs. 

Each time a vehicle passes through a toll plaza, money is deducted from the associated FASTag account. Therefore, individuals will have to check their FASTag balance and recharge now and then before heading on a long road trip. 

Check FASTag account balance with banks

Individuals can access the dedicated FASTag portal of various issuer banks. They can head to the website of their FASTag issuer, log in to their account, and check their account balance.

If the app does not reflect, they can give a missed call on 8884333331 to get an update on their account balance. In addition, car owners can check their FASTag balance offline
