Want FASTag quickly to avoid penalty? Go to ICICI Bank online to get one seamlessly
The Bank enables both its customers and non-customers to obtain the FASTag in a hassle-free manner by filling out an application form online and uploading the required documents pertaining to the vehicle.
Waiting in long queues for a turn to make payment and exit toll plazas is the thing every driver wishes to ignore. Now, the recent directive by Government of India’s Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MoRTH) for National Highways, will bring you some respite. The directive that will also be implemented at all toll plazas shortly states that from December 1 onwards, payments at toll plazas on National Highways will be accepted digitally through FASTag only. This consequentially eliminates the need for commuters to stop and make payment in cash.
What is FASTag?
FASTag is a brand name owned by Indian Highways Management Company Ltd. (IHMCL) which carries out electronic tolling and other ancillary projects of NHAI.
How FASTag works:
This Radio Frequency Identification Device (RFID) tag is affixed on the windscreen of the vehicle. It is an easy to use, reloadable tag which enables automatic deduction of toll charges and lets the vehicle pass through the toll plaza without stopping for cash transaction.
However, if you have not yet equipped your vehicle with the FASTag, you can still do so in time, seamlessly with ICICI Bank. The Bank enables both its customers and non-customers to obtain the FASTag in a hassle-free manner by filling out an application form online and uploading the required documents pertaining to the vehicle.
Customers can also visit the Bank’s branch and fill out a physical application form to get a FASTag issued for their vehicle.
Once purchased, you can reload the tag instantly online using ICICI Bank’s digital channels of internet and mobile banking or the ICICI Bank FASTag portal.
Here’s how you can obtain your FASTag using the multiple channels enabled by ICICI Bank:
1. ICICI Bank FASTag portal
a) Visit www.icicibank.com/fastag
b) Click on “Apply Now”
c) Fill the application form & upload the required documents
d) Upon successful completion of the application, the tag is couriered to the applicant’s ‘dispatch address’

Remember, that those drivers who have not purchased FASTag, but end up straying into the 'FASTag Lane', will have to pay a penalty on the spot - double the charges.
