The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways has decided to make all the lanes of the Toll Plazas on every National Highways across India to be declared as “FASTag lane” and this to take effect from midnight of 15th February 2021. So, this means that according to NH Fee Rules 2008, any vehicle not fitted with FASTag or without valid functional FASTag entering into the FASTag lane of the fee plaza will have to pay a fee double the amount of fee applicable for that category in cash.


As per the Ministry, a statement was issued on 14th February where it has been mentioned that it has been done to promote Digital India and make more use of digital modes for Toll payments, which will result in less waiting time and low fuel consumption thus resulting in less pollution and also an easy passage through Toll Gates.


The fitment of FASTag for  M&N categories of motor vehicles was mandated by the Ministry w.e.f 1st January 2021, where ‘M’ Category stands for a motor vehicle having at least four wheels used for carrying passengers and ‘N’ Category of motor vehicles are those with at least four wheels used for carrying goods and also passengers.
