Daily FASTag toll collection reaches record high of Rs 193 cr

Shillong: The implementation of the FASTag system for toll collection in India has been a success with a consistent growth trajectory.

On April 29 this year, the daily toll collection through FASTag system achieved an all-time high of Rs 193.15 crore, with 1.16 crore transactions recorded in a single day.


Since FASTag was mandated by the Centre in February 2021, the number of toll plazas under the programme has increased from 770 to 1,228, including 339 state toll plazas. With a penetration rate of around 97% and over 6.9 crore FASTags issued to users, the system has significantly improved the user experience by reducing waiting times at national highway fee plazas.

Besides, FASTag has also facilitated seamless and secure contactless payment for parking fees at over 140 parking lots in over 50 cities across India.

The Centre remains steadfast in its commitment to providing a seamless and hassle-free tolling experience for all road users. In this context, NHAI is actively working towards finalising the necessary requirements for implementing a tolling system based on the Global Navigation Satellite System.
