Where will you find fastag
Fastag is like a radio frequency tag, which is mounted on the side screen of the vehicle. It can be recharged from time to time. The advantage of its proximity is that the vehicle is identified on the toll through this tag while the train passes through the toll plaza. The amount of toll payment has to be paid, the amount is deducted by itself through that tag. That is, there is no need to stop at the toll.
