Fastag is a machine in which sometimes there is a technical problem due to which we have to pay manual payment or we have to change the route to get out.
Earlier, in paying manually, the engine of our car was running, due to which our petrol and diesel used to run, and the pollution is also less because the car does not stop there for a long time. If your car has entered the fast tag line and you have not yet installed the fast tag, then you have to pay double charge because then no one can violate this rule.
You will get a message about the amount you will pay from your bank or from your FASTag card. If your car is stolen, then after crossing the toll plaza, you will get a message that from which toll plaza your car has crossed. FASTag is an online transaction with no compromise
Due to the fast tag, it becomes easy to keep the accounts on the account, due to which the government does not need to set up a separate employment in doing corruption. Local people have problems at toll plazas, such as people whose home and work are both close to a 2 or 3 km toll and they have to come again and again, although the government has kept a separate toll plaza for these people. So that they do not face any problem in coming and going, but they have to register that it is near the toll plaza and they keep moving.
There will never be looting at the toll plaza, in the earlier times, the toll tax used to be collected throughout the day at the toll plaza, due to which the looting was happening more but now they will get rid of them. And many people did not pay money at the toll plaza due to grandfather, but now automatic payment will be deducted from their FASTag card. Clone fastag means someone else copies our fastag and puts it on his car, then his money will be deducted from our fastag card or will be deducted from our bank.
