What is the SBI FASTag?
SBI FASTag is a 10×5 cm, multilayered, rectangle-shaped piece of good-quality paper with a chip and antenna inside its layers.
SBI FASTag uses Radio Frequency Identification technology for making toll payments directly from the prepaid account or linked savings bank account.
It is posted on the vehicle windscreen and enables the automatic deduction of toll charges while driving through toll plazas.
It provides convenience and ease during transit through toll plazas across the country.
How does SBI FASTag work?
SBI FASTag is linked to your prepaid account or savings bank account. The tag has a chip and antenna inside it. The tag reader at toll plazas uses RFID technology to read users’ details and initiate autopayment while passing through all toll plazas.
Applicable charges will be automatically debited from your prepaid account or linked savings bank account.
