The central government is leaving no stone unturned to popularize the fastag required for toll collection among the people. Recently, the government made it mandatory to get a discount on the toll plaza. Along with this, the government has also made fastag mandatory for car insurance.
The rule will be applicable from 1 April
The Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has issued a notification and ordered to implement this rule from April 1, 2021. After this, the third party insurance of the vehicles will be available only when the car is fastened. If there is no fastag on the vehicle, then the vehicle owners will face trouble in getting this insurance.
Fastag for fitness too
Earlier, the government had instructed to take the details of fastag in the vehicle while registering the vehicles or issuing fitness certificate to them.
These rules have come into force since 25 August
The Ministry of Road Transport also made FASTAG mandatory for the discount on return within 24 hours from the toll plaza. Now this discount will be given only to those vehicles which have Fastag.
According to the new rule, if the fasted car returns to the same toll plaza within 24 hours, then no separate receipt will be required to be deducted for the discount. On the toll plaza itself, you will deduct money by applying a discount from his Fastag account. Now if you pay toll tax from cash, then you will not get rebate on return in 24 hours.
