FASTag must for new 4-wheelers from Dec 1

All new four-wheelers will need to get FASTags affixed on their front windscreens before they come out of factories or dealer showrooms from December 1.

For vehicles with drive away-chassis like trucks and buses, FASTags will be installed by owners before registration.This means the onus of affixing smart tags on 4-wheelers will be on manufacturers and dealers. Sources said the transport ministry should have made manufacturers responsible for installing the tags for easier implementation. FASTags use radio frequency identification technology and allow vehicles to pass through toll plazas without waiting in queues as payments are electronically made.
