Fastag is a credit card-like chip that works on Radio Frequency Identification technology(RFID). It is pasted on the windscreen of a car or any other vehicle. As soon as you go to a toll plaza with your vehicle, the sensor on the toll plaza will deduct a fixed amount from your Fastag account. You can pay your toll tax without stopping the vehicle at the toll plaza.
Fastag starts working as soon as it is linked to a prepaid account. When the available amount in this account expires, it has to be recharged.
