For making the toll transactions at the toll plazas having a Fastag is a must for every four-wheeler vehicle. Without Fastag you won’t be able to pay toll tax at the toll plazas. Fastag was started in India to solve the toll-related problems that vehicle owners have to face at the toll plazas on the National Highways of India. Fastag was started to pay toll tax digitally and it can be purchased from any of the official issuing service provider link IDFC First Bank, IDFC First Bank, Paytm, Google Pay, etc.
The use of Fastag makes the toll collection process easy not only for the users but also for the toll plaza management.
But sometimes the Fastag can cause problems to those who are the registered owners of the vehicle. For example, if you have sold your old car to someone, but you have not removed your Fastag from your vehicle. Also, you don’t have any contact information of the person to whom you have sold the car. In such cases, that person will continue using the Fastag at toll plazas and the money will keep on deducting from your account. If your vehicle is stolen, the Fastag remains installed on it and the thief can also continue paying the toll payments through your Fastag. So to avoid such situations we must deactivate or surrender your Fastag to the bank or other service provider from where you have purchased it.
Below we are explaining various methods to surrender or deactivate your Fastag
- Deactivate Fastag through Paytm
- Deactivate Fastag from IDFC First Bank through the website
