State Bank of India (SBI) has launched a cashless drive through toll plaza product for its customers here.

The product, christened SBI Fastag, is a card that works on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology. Money can be loaded on the card. It is affixed on the windscreen of the vehicle and enables it to drive through toll plazas without stopping for cash transactions by allowing auto debit of toll amount from the card balance.

While formally launching Fastag, Neeraj Vyas, Deputy Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer, SBI, said the facility is currently operational in about 350 toll plazas across the national highways.
