Two new mobile apps, MyFASTag and FASTag Partner, which will facilitate availability and digital recharge of highway toll RFID tags affixed in cars, were launched on Thursday by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI). Tags can be bought online and will be home delivered as well.

FASTag is a reloadable tag affixed on a vehicle’s windscreen having radio frequency identification (RFID) technology that is linked to a prepaid account for automatic deduction of toll charges and the vehicle is not required to stop at the toll booths for cash transaction.
