FASTag Recharge Rules: To avoid long queues at toll plazas while traveling on the highway, the government has implemented Electronic Toll Collection System (FASTag). This not only saves the time of the people but also makes it very easy to pay the toll. The best thing about FASTag is that you can recharge it from your mobile itself. But sometimes we may have to suffer losses due to some mistakes while recharging FASTag. Today we are going to tell you some important things, which are important to keep in mind while recharging.
Before recharging FASTag from Paytm, Phonepe, or any other payment app, you have to enter the vehicle number. If you enter the wrong number by mistake, then money will also be deducted from your account and there will be no recharge.
Before recharging FASTag, it is important that your FASTag should be linked to a bank account. If it is not, then do it first. You are asked to enter bank details before recharging. Even if you give the wrong details, your recharge will be canceled and money can also be deducted from the account.
If you have sold your used car or car to someone, then first deactivate its FASTag. If you do not do this, money will continue to be deducted from your account at the toll plaza.
If you are facing any problem in recharging the FASTag, or your extra money is being deducted, then you can contact the helpline number 1033 of NHAI. This helpline has been started only for the problems related to FASTag.
Apart from this, you should keep checking the balance of your FASTag from time to time. When there is less money in FASTag, then recharge should be done immediately. Because if you do not have money in your FASTag, then you will have to pay double the charge while passing through the toll.
