To avoid traffic blocks at toll plazas by streamlining e-toll collection, NHAI has mandated that all four-wheel drivers complete their FASTag cards' KYC (Know Your Customer) process by February 29, 2024. Non-compliance will lead to deactivation of FASTags and when you cross a toll plaza with such a card, you will be charged double the regular amount. FASTag, a mandatory requirement, is a sticker affixed on a vehicle's windscreen, for electronic toll payment at over 615 toll plazas in the country across national highways. Linked to a car's registration details, the barcode on each FASTag automatically deducts the toll fee from the associated digital wallet when the vehicle crosses a toll plaza. Even to get a third-party motor insurance FASTag is mandatory.

The NHAI announced that only the latest issued FASTag account would remain active with previous tags being deactivated or blacklisted. But some users may not have completed their latest FASTag's KYC update. If your FASTag KYC is incomplete, you will receive notification via email, SMS, or through issuing bank’s application interface regarding incomplete KYC. You are requested to keep an eye on your registered communication channels such as SMS, e-mail, etc. for updates.

All FASTag holders can update their KYC using any of the identity card, such as passport, driving license, Voter ID Card, PAN Card, or an aadhaar card.
