In order to remove bottlenecks and ensure seamless movement of traffic and collection of fee as per notified rates, a cashless payment mechanism (FASTag) was rolled out based on the recommendations of a committee constituted under Shri Nandan Nilekani. The use of FASTag shall reduce traffic congestion and increase user convenience in making payments without stoppage at fee plazas thus saving on time, money and fuel. Electronic Fee Collection (EFC) system was rolled out w.e.f. 25.04.2016. As on 23.11.2016, 347 fee plazas out of 366 on national highways across the country have been integrated and made operational for EFC transaction.
