Fastag users need your input on these items.

Fastag recharge amount debited from bank not added in the walet what to do

Fastag is enabled and active not read at toll plaza, what to do

Return journey made but two times single journey deducted, how to claim the refund

7.50 % cashback is it real how many of you got it after how many days/months

Fastag Portability similar to Mobile number portability is it present

Helpdesk person is horribly giving reply without understanding the question how to handle

WHere to give the grievance there is no page to complaint for Fastag, IHMCL, Etcnodal are not replying for the name sake the email contact us exists


Any good fastag in the market which ticks in all the above for a positive side

Since Return journey benefit was not provided to KSRTC. KSRTC has scrapped FASTAG within a month. Loss to them was around Rs 28 Lakhs in a month time.
This system will take time till things stabilize.
After hearing the KSRTC story, I dropped to apply for FASTAG.
My friend has bought FASTAG [PayTM], he makes very few return trips and he is happy with it.

No cashback is paid back instantly. Takes while; this is deliberate; so that you cannot keep track of receiving CASH BACKs - even if they miss to provide one or two cashbacks- how will you remember or connect?

so that is the hidden task for them, if they intend to pocket it, why at all run this business

After much follow up and the patience which the bank asked to maintain, the cash back of 7.5% finally got it in to the wallet.
As per the timelines, for all travel made in Feb 2018, NPCI gave the cashback to Axis bank on 28th March 2018, as per the bank's email.
The patience which the bank asked to maintain has to be taken as 10 days.
On 7th April 2018, the magic happened, the bank did deposit 7.5% in to the wallet account.

So in all digital transaction to get back it takes a full month and 7 days later to receive a cashback.

Now have to do a math and see, is it worth after getting it after 38 days or interest earned in a 38 days fixed deposit is more than the cash back.

In all these instances and learning, one term is not understood by me till now, digital transaction. Which computer takes 10 days to process the data .

On 24-03-2019, Made a trip from Chennai to Nellore and return to Chennai same day, with Fastag adequately loaded with money
Toll plazas at Nallur, Sulurpet, Budhnam and Venkatachalam all 4 toll plazas deducted bothways single fare instead of Return Fare.
Nallur return fare is 70 and single 47, but bothways deducted 47rs.

Sulurpet 55 rs both times
Budhnam 40 Rs both times
Venkatachalam 30 Rs both times.
Asked for the clarification, Venkatachalam toll plaza replied they don't have return toll provision. Is it so? anybody who frequents these toll plazas can comment
