How To Check FASTag Balance Using Google Pay

How to Check Fastag Balance Using Google Pay: The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways devised a new system to avoid long lines at toll plazas. FASTag, the name given to this system, was invented in 2014 in a few major cities in India. Fastag is an electronic toll collection system that makes it simple to pay toll taxes at toll plazas and allows vehicles to cross highways quickly due to automatic toll payment deduction.

The primary goal of this article is to inform you on how to check the balance of your Fastag in Google Pay. Before we get into that, let’s go over what a Fastag is, how it works, and how to apply a new Fastag.

What exactly is a FASTag?

Fastag functions similarly to a prepaid card that employs Radio Frequency Identification technology. Once you’ve obtained a Fastag, you must adhere it to the vehicle’s windshield.

How FASTag Work?

When you activate your Fastag and come within a few meters of a toll plaza, the Radio Frequency Identification technology used in the Fastag devices allows it to be scanned by the sensors at that toll plaza. The payment will be deducted from your Fastag prepaid account, and you will be able to travel to your destinations without having to wait in long lines at toll booths.

When the FASTtag was first introduced, there were only a few lanes at toll plazas that accepted payment via Fastag, but now that it is mandatory for all four-wheeled vehicles to have a Fastag, all lanes at toll plazas are dedicated to Fastag. You can enter any of these lanes without stopping to pay the tolls.

You can get a lot of benefits from using Fastag on your vehicle, some of which are as follows:

  • Fastag eliminates the need to carry cash with you when paying tolls.
  • Because there is no waiting time, Fastag expedites toll payment.
  • Fastag can now be used to pay parking fees and make payments at gas stations.
  • Fastag providers also run a number of cashback programs.
  • Before the use of Fastag, a lot of fuel was wasted due to waiting in lines, but this problem has been greatly reduced.
