FASTag is a tech-enabled sticker, which works like a QR code, that can be stuck to your car’s windshield. This FASTag is further linked to your wallet or prepaid account where you can top-up the FASTag for your travel and continued use.

Instead, there will be automated readers that will identify your FASTag and deduct appropriate money as you travel through a toll plaza. IDFC First Bank is one of the banks authorised by NHAI to distribute FASTags in the country. AckoDrive has partnered with IDFC First Bank to offer the FASTag for free to customers.
