A convenient payment option for tolls

Travelling has become more comfortable and convenient with the advent of technology. One of the recent developments in this area is the implementation of Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) system. FASTag is a part of ETC that provides a cashless payment option for tolls. South Indian Bank (SIB) is one of the banks that offer FASTag services in India. In this article, we will discuss the features and benefits of SIB FASTag, how to apply for it and the recharge process.

FASTag is a prepaid RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) sticker that is stuck on the windscreen of a vehicle. The sticker contains a unique number linked to the vehicle's registration number and an account in a bank or wallet. When a vehicle passes through a toll plaza, the system reads the tag and deducts the toll amount from the account. FASTag is valid for five years and can be recharged as and when necessary.

Several banks and wallets provide FASTag services. SIB FASTag is a popular choice among people due to its easy application process, competitive pricing, and excellent customer service.
