The ‘One Vehicle One FASTag’ initiative, effective from February 1, 2024, is a strategic move by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to enhance the efficiency of the Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) system on Indian National Highways. This initiative mandates that each vehicle should have only one FASTag, requiring users to comply with updated Reserve Bank of India (RBI) guidelines, particularly the completion of the Know Your Customer (KYC) process. It aims to eliminate the misuse of FASTags, such as using one tag for multiple vehicles or linking multiple tags to a single vehicle. Users are urged to discard any old FASTags and ensure that their latest FASTag has updated KYC details to avoid deactivation or blacklisting post-January 31, 2024. The initiative is expected to streamline toll operations, reduce delays and inconvenience at toll plazas, and ensure a smoother flow of traffic.
