FASTag has become a ubiquitous presence in our cars. Issued under the order of the National Highways Authority of India, a FASTag is a radio frequency identification (RFID) sticker tag that can be purchased through various issuing vendors. The tag is a move to digitise the tolls paid at highway booths, with the eventual goal of expanding their use in authorised parking spots. Eventually, the goal behind a FASTag is to reduce the use of cash in tolls – and digitise the entire process.

How to Check FASTag Balance Through Official Websites

Before proceeding further, it’s important to understand that FASTag does not have its own, standalone portal. Instead, it is given out by an issuing authority. These authorities are banks or banking services, which therefore allow users to link their accounts to a FASTag account.

If you have already done this bit, you will already have a set of login details and your registered mobile number on this portal. Then, use the following steps to check your FASTag balance from your PC:

  1. Search for the portal through which you had signed up for FASTag. For instance, if you signed up for it through ICICI Bank, simply search for ‘ICICI FASTag’, and access the official page for the portal.
  2. Once you’ve located the site, you will find a login portal on it. Use your username and password to login, or choose a one-time password (OTP) login.

Some sites also let you login by using your vehicle registration number and OTP. Some, such as Paytm on the other hand, do not allow users to login through the website, and require you to use the app instead.

What should be the minimum balance on FASTag?

What happens if the FASTag doesn’t have enough balance?

If your balance is running low, you will still be allowed to pass a toll booth. In this case, the latest charges will be deducted from the tag’s security deposit, which must be recharged before you cross the next toll booth.

What will happen to account balance if FASTag is lost or damaged?

If the tag is lost or damaged, you will need to report it to the issuing bank by calling its customer centre. The latter will then backlist the tag to prevent any further transactions on it. The same can be reactivated by paying a reissuance fee, and registering with the same mobile or vehicle number.
