Mark your calendars, FASTag users! January 31st marks a crucial deadline for ensuring smooth highway travels. On that date, incomplete KYC (Know Your Customer) information will lead to FASTag deactivation or blacklisting, even if your account has sufficient balance. This announcement from the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways aims to streamline the electronic toll collection system and avoid future inconveniences.
One Vehicle, One FASTag: Say goodbye to the hassle of managing multiple FASTags for a single vehicle! The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is implementing the “One Vehicle, One FASTag” initiative, encouraging users to keep only the latest active FASTag associated with their vehicle. This will eliminate confusion and expedite toll plaza crossings.
KYC Completion is Key: To avoid unpleasant surprises at the toll booth, prioritize updating your KYC details for your latest FASTag. This aligns with RBI guidelines and ensures smooth transactions. Remember, deactivated or blacklisted FASTags become useless, potentially disrupting your travel plans.
Discard Unused FASTags: Don’t hold onto those old, dormant FASTags. Contact your issuing bank to properly discard them. This proactive step contributes to a cleaner, more efficient highway ecosystem.
Benefits of Compliance: Embracing these changes unlocks several advantages. Smoothly pass through toll plazas without delays, avoid unnecessary queues, and experience a hassle-free travel experience. Additionally, you contribute to a more organized and efficient national highway network.
Reaching Out for Help: Still have questions or need assistance? Don’t hesitate to contact the toll plaza nearest you or your bank’s dedicated FASTag customer care number.
Remember, January 31st is your deadline. Take action today, complete your FASTag KYC, and adopt the “One Vehicle, One FASTag” approach. Happy and hassle-free highway journeys await!
