The National Highways Authority of India operates the FASTag electronic toll collection system. It uses Radio Frequency Identification technology to allow toll taxes to be paid in real-time at the toll booth.
It is important to link both the FASTag and Google Pay accounts in order to recharge the FASTag account using the payments service. To do so, first open the Google Pay app and navigate to the “Bill Payments” area. You will find the option to recharge your FASTag here. After that, you must choose one of the bank accounts listed in your Google Pay app to recharge your FASTag.
To use Google Pay to recharge FASTag, you must first create a Google Pay FASTag account that is linked to the Unified Payments Interface (UPI).
