The deadline for mandatory use of FASTag for all vehicles was initially set on January 1, 2021. However, the authorities have decided to extend the dates by a few weeks. The new deadline is set to February 15, 2021.
According to the Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989, the FASTag had been made mandatory for all registration of new four-wheeler vehicles. New vehicles will come with a FASTag fitted right from the factory. Customer looking to purchase a FASTag can get it from various online and offline options.
All vehicles going through the highway tolls across the country need to have a valid FASTag for toll transactions. After the deadline, the highway tolls will no longer accept cash as a mode of payment and have to be electronically using the FASTag.
Apart from the toll collection, the FASTag has been made mandatory for annual renewals of vehicle documents. This includes the third party insurance and the (PUC) Pollution Under Control emission certificate.
