To ensure hassle-free movement of vehicles at toll plazas, the government so far has issued 26 lakh FASTags, Parliament was informed earlier. "The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH), through National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has launched FASTag programme to allow cashless payment of user fee for near non-stop movement of vehicles through toll plazas.

As of August 3, 2018, 26,59,042 RFID Tags have been issued," Minister of State for Road Transport and Highways Mansukh L Mandaviya told the Lok Sabha in a written reply. The minister said financial concession is given to FASTag users.

As per the Gazette notification on September 2, 2017, all new motor vehicles sold on or after December 1, 2017, shall be fitted with FASTag. Mandaviya said the government has taken a number of steps to popularise FASTags among highway users.

He also said, "To facilitate easy availability of FASTag, it is being made available through kiosks set up by tag-issuer banks and also through online platforms. Mobile applications such as My FASTag have also started taking requests and providing FASTag to interested road users."
