FASTag is cashless entry or pass through Toll Plazas on Highways in this era.
It was activated some years ago but now it is going to be a compulsory Item from 1 December 2019.
In 2017, 2918 also they tried to implement it but not successful.

Some Toll Plazas are at some of the remote areas with not much network.
2G is Luxury at remote places.
Forget internet at such places.

How this will work ?

Make all Toll Plazas as WiFi Zone also.
Internet via Dish for remote places is only solution here.
You can run ATM etc also this way and earn by making Restaurant etc here.
This will cover investment / costs in running economy.

Bank's transactions fail or scanner does not work even manually but you have to pay cash and after passing that Toll plaza, a sms reaches from your bank that amount is already deducted.
No one is going to return that amount.
Procedures are long.
Most members here have experienced this.

FASTag experience from my travelling over past two months

1. Availability
As per recent details on social media it is available free of cost but you have to charge it your self, else you can get one online for as low as Rs 100.

2. If all tollways have FASTag
Yes it is available and working on almost all lanes on all National Highways and Expressways
BUT not on many state highways e.g. Ajmer to Udaipur State highway no FASTag option is there you have to pay in cash.

Similarly if you are aware of Western and Eastern Peripheral Expressway around Delhi, I used Western Peripheral expressway a day before Diwali, I was told that so far FASTag is not applicable on it and I have to pay cash

3. Double Charging
I entered a tollgate paid Rs 32 and moved on after going ahead of about 10 KM got sms which read that I have been charged for Rs32 from my FASTag, (How ? When ? I didnt charge it !!). Anyways I called on number written behind Toll Slip and they told me to call at Helpline on FASTag and then send them details by email.

My doubt was if it will work !! After being on phone call (Aap katar mein hain, aapki call jald lee jayegi) for thirty minutes (Please Note: FASTag customer care is available only in working hours and not at night) I got my amount refunded back after 3 days, same as told by customer care.

4. Personal Experience (about which bank FASTag to buy)
I am using SBI FASTag on my personal vehicle and PAYTM FASTag on second vehicle used by Family
For PayTm one just link it to your paytm account and it will keep deducting from your paytm wallet.
For SBI one either link it with your SBI Account number (NO I WONT DO THAT) so you have to charge it, but it dosn't work through app you have to go to SBI website and then do it everytime when you need to topup.
