FASTags with Incomplete KYC to Get Deactivated Post Jan 31

NHAI’s New Rule: One Vehicle, One FASTag

New Delhi, Jan 16: The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has come up with a new rule called “One Vehicle, One FASTag.” This rule is all about making sure that each vehicle has its own FASTag and that we don’t use one FASTag for multiple vehicles. It’s like having your own special pass for the toll plazas!

Why is NHAI Doing This?

NHAI wants to make sure that the Electronic Toll Collection system works smoothly and that we can move through the toll plazas without any problems. Sometimes, people use one FASTag for different vehicles, or they link multiple FASTags to just one vehicle. This can cause confusion and slow things down at the toll plazas. So, NHAI wants to encourage everyone to follow the “One Vehicle, One FASTag” rule.

Complete Your KYC for a Hassle-Free Ride

Now, here’s another important thing to know. NHAI wants all FASTag users to complete their “Know Your Customer” (KYC) process. It’s like giving some information about yourself to the bank that issued your FASTag. This is important because FASTags with incomplete KYC will be deactivated or blacklisted by the banks after January 31, 2024. We don’t want that to happen, right?

What Should You Do?

To avoid any inconvenience, make sure you complete the KYC process for your FASTag. If you have any old FASTags that you’re not using anymore, get rid of them. Only keep the latest one, because the older ones will stop working after January 31, 2024. If you need any help or have any questions, you can contact the toll plazas or call the customer care number of your bank.

Why is NHAI Doing This?

NHAI is taking these steps because they found out that some people were getting multiple FASTags for just one vehicle. This is not allowed, and it goes against the rules set by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). Also, sometimes people don’t stick their FASTags properly on the windscreen of their vehicles. This causes delays at the toll plazas and makes things difficult for other people using the National Highways.

FASTags: Making Our Journeys Better

FASTags have become really popular, with around 8 crore users in India. They have made the Electronic Toll Collection system much more efficient. And now, with the “One Vehicle, One FASTag” rule, things are going to get even better. We can expect smoother and more comfortable journeys on the National Highways. So, let’s make sure we follow the rules and enjoy our rides!
