Vehicles with invalid or non-functional FASTag to be charged double toll Fee applicable to their category

By PIB Delhi

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has issued notification GSR 298 E,  dated 15th May 2020 for amendment in the  National Highways Fee (Determination of Rates and Collection) Rules, 2008 which provide that if a vehicle which is not fitted with FASTag or the vehicle is without a valid or functional FASTag, enters into “FASTag lane” of the Fee plazas, then they shall pay a fee equivalent to two times of the fee applicable to that category of vehicles.

Before this amendment, the user of the vehicle was to pay twice on the fee plaza only if the vehicle didn’t carry the FASTag and entered in dedicated FASTag lane.
