Frauds of paytm kyc etc.




Your PAYTM FASTag is issued by company only after kyc.
No need to do it online or on call by someone else claiming to be from PAYTM office team.

FAQ on Fastag:
NETC Consumer FAQs

Link does not advise on free pass.

I too also read on paper.

Also speed happy drivers, there is a warning system of overspeeding which can get captured when traveling between 2 toll gates which is 120 kmph [getting 80-90 kmph is challenge]

Read the complete SOP for NETC:

Paytm FASTag is now for 250

Cost : Rs.100
In FASTag Wallet : Rs.150


.Earlier it was Rs.500 as Rs. 250 were taken as Security Deposit as Refundable.
People started to goto bank for FASTag, now they decided to go for 250 only.
However Paytm is acceptable and easier to use if you want to use it simply.
You can now add Rs.10,000 from Credit Card without any deduction so it is going to be used frequently.

I bought ICICI Fastag.
I used it on 4 tolls, worked flawlessly for me. One toll had return journey, during return journey it deducted the additional discounted fare.

SMS received for deduction was after 5 to 90 minutes after crossing toll. Email at time I have received after 16-20 hours. However the time of crossing toll was correctly recorded.

There may be some issues and I hope they will be sorted out over time.
I appreciate the efforts from all parties involved in implementation and operation of Fastag.

In one of the toll, a local private Innova had entered the Fastag. I was not sure Vehicle had Fastag or not, but killed the time by nearly 5 minutes & finally vehicle had to pass by paying cash. Defeating the very fact of FASTAG.
There are some idiots who think they can bully and get a pass.

There is another problem with ICICI FASTag is that it's APP is not available on ios store (iphone) !
You have to register it on android.
Such people have to maintain 2-3 or more vehicles and finding it difficult.

Now they have to connect it to another account..
You can attach more card / vehicles to Paytm FASTag wallet.

If The FASTag For Your Car Is Not Read by Scanners at Toll Plazas, Your Trip is Free
As of December 15, the government says that 1.15 crore FASTags have been issued.

As of December 15, the government says that 1.15 crore FASTags have been issued.

You probably didn’t know this, but if the FASTag for your car isn’t properly detected by the reading machines in different lanes at toll plazas, you do not need to pay any toll at all for that particular trip. The National Highway Fee Determination of Rates and Collection Amendment Rule 2018 GSR 427E 07.05.2018 of the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) clarifies the little-known rule. This could be useful information as the FASTags become mandatory for payment at toll plazas across all national highways in India from January 15.
“Provided also that if a vehicle user with a valid, functional FASTag or any such device with sufficient balance in the linked account crossing a fee plaza installed with Electronic Toll Collection infrastructure, is not able to pay user fee through FASTag or any such device owing to malfunctioning of Electronic Toll Collection infrastructure, the vehicle user shall be permitted to pass the fee plaza without payment of any user fee. An appropriate zero transaction receipt shall be issued mandatorily for all such transactions,” reads the rule (Read more here).

A FASTag is a sticker that is attached to the windshield of your car. This is Radio-frequency Identification (RFID) enabled via the barcode and is linked with the registration details of your vehicle. That information is stored in the barcode itself. As you drive though any toll plaza on any national highway in India, there will be dedicated lanes that have FASTag readers installed overhead—and as your vehicle passes beneath them, the RFID code is detected for your vehicle, processed and the necessary toll amount is deducted from the prepaid balance in the FASTag account. All this without you having to stop, interact with a human being at a toll plaza and having to wait in long queues to pay cash.
The government hopes that FASTags will reduce the wait time at toll plazas on national highways by enabling digital payments.
The FASTags were officially launched by the NHAI in October 2017, but the pace of FASTag adoption has picked up since the Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari announced on October 2018 that FASTags will become mandatory for all vehicles. As of December 15, the government says that 1.15 crore FASTags have been issued.

If you need to buy a FASTag for your car, you can either physically buy one at certain toll plazas across India, by carrying your identification as well as the vehicle registration documents with you. This is a mandatory KYC process. Or, and this could perhaps be simpler as well—you could buy one on Amazon.in or approach certain banks for these FASTags. The banks that currently offer FASTags include HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, State Bank of India, Kotak Mahindra Bank, Axis Bank as well as the Airtel Payments Bank and Paytm Payments Bank.
