What is FASTag?
FASTag is an electronic toll collection chip for national highways in India. It is a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip affixed to the windscreen of a vehicle that automatically deducts through the prepaid or savings account linked to it when it passes through designated plazas, hence streamlining traffic flow and minimizing congestion.
Why update FASTag KYC?
Recently, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) announced that FASTag users should update their Know Your Customer (KYC) details before the set deadline of January 31, 2024 (Wednesday), to ensure the prevention of intentional misuse of FASTags on vehicles, the issuance of multiple FASTags for a single automobile, and the distribution of FASTags without proper KYC verification.
