National Highways Authority of India has rolled out a programme for Electronic Toll Collection on Toll Plazas on National Highways known as FASTag. FASTag is a device that employs Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology for making toll payments directly from the prepaid account linked to it. It is affixed over the windscreen of your vehicle and enables you to drive through toll plazas.

  • Ease of payment – No need to carry cash for toll transactions, saves time
  • Enables near non-stop movement of vehicles leading to lower fuel cost.
  • Online Recharge – FASTag is linked to your BPay Wallet which can be loaded through credit /debit card or NetBanking
  • SMS alerts for toll transactions, low balance, etc.
  • Linked BPay Wallet 
  • Incentive: You can avail a cashback of 5% on all toll payments using FASTag in 2018-19

Other important benefits are:

Environmental Benefit Social Benefit Economic Benefit
  • Reduced air pollution
  • Reduced use of paper
  • Reduced toll payment hassle
  • Better highway management
  • Reduced effort in management at toll plaza
  • Reduced effort in monitoring centrally

FASTag is mandatory for vehicles sold on or after 1st December 2017. For vehicles sold before 1st December 2017, adopting FASTag is voluntary at this stage of the programme. It may be made mandatory in the future at some locations.

Customers can avail a cashback of 5% on all toll payments using FASTag in FY 2018-19. 

FASTag is presently operational at 400+ toll plazas across the National Highways network of India. Additional toll plazas will be brought under the FASTag programme in the future. Please check the list of active toll plazas under the ETC programme by clicking here.

You can register your vehicle details for FASTag through Fino BPay App or at Fino & BPCL locations.

Fino Payments Bank will electronically deduct the applicable toll fee from the customer’s wallet account linked to his or her FASTag. This deduction will be done after the toll transaction has taken place. The customer needs to adequately recharge the wallet account linked to FASTag.

The customer will receive an SMS with the requisite details on his registered mobile number as soon as the toll transaction takes place. You may also download statements for any period from your BPay wallet account.

You may recharge your FASTag linked wallet account through your BPay App or by paying cash at identified Fino & BPCL branches / Merchant locations. Customers can recharge BPay wallet account using credit card/ debit card/ or net banking.

FASTag users will always get a separate lane at toll plazas which will be only used by FASTag affixed vehicles.

You will need to take two separate FASTags for two vehicles, however you can link multiple FASTags to a single wallet account. You need to ensure that your wallet account has adequate funds to use all FASTags linked with it.

No, FASTag is issued to each vehicle separately based on KYC documents submitted. If, for instance, a FASTag bought for a car is used for a truck, then such FASTags shall be blacklisted resulting in a denial of passage from FASTag lanes on toll plazas. FASTag users are advised to desist from such practice.

You need to close FASTag through BPay App or contact our branches / Merchant points for closing FASTag. Your security deposit will be refunded to your linked wallet account. You can then opt for a new FASTag to be issued for your vehicle.

You will receive an SMS alert in your registered Wallet phone number each time an amount is deducted from your FASTag account. The fee payable at each toll plaza may be seen at http://tis.nhai.gov.in/ in addition to being displayed at the concerned toll plaza.

You can report an incorrect deduction by calling our Customer Care number. We will review your request and take necessary action.

You may block FASTag through BPay App or contact Fino Payments Bank branches / Merchants and close your FASTag.

You couldn’t pass through an ETC lane due to technical issues at the toll plaza. In such situations, please use another lane and pay by cash. In case of any money deduction, please contact our branches or Customer Care.

FASTag is location agnostic and will work at all enabled toll plazas.

It is strictly prohibited to purchase two FASTag for the same vehicle. In case of multiple FASTag used on a single vehicle, the customer will be responsible for any operational issues faced.

In case of car being sold or transferred, you need to close your existing FASTag as FASTag is not transferable.

You can visit one of our branches / Merchants and apply for a new FASTag.

It is planned to extend FASTag usage to toll plazas on State highways, parking lots for payment of parking charges and various other payments at wayside amenities

Please contact our customer care number 022 6868 1414 for resolution of your grievances.

Yes, a one-time replacement fee of Rs200 is applicable for every Tag replacement.

Currently, there are no fees for FASTag closing or deactivation.

The one-time security deposit taken at the time of FASTag issuance will be credited back to your linked wallet account subject to outstanding transaction clearance.

UPI stands for Unified Payments Interface (UPI) which is platform provided by NPCI to facilitate inter-operability amongst various banks. It is a one stop solution for multiple bank accounts, one app. It allows all account holders to send and receive money using their smartphones with a single identifier – virtual payments address (VPA)/ UPI ID – without entering any bank account information. Therefore, customers do not need to know the payee's or payer’s IFS Code ode, bank account details, etc. and this makes the process simpler.

A VPA/ UPI ID is an identifier which you create and link any of your bank accounts to make secure payments. The VPA/ UPI ID can be yourname@finobank or mobilenumber@finobank which is easy to remember.

A VPA/ UPI ID can be alphabetical, numeric or alphanumeric. It should be of minimum 4 characters. It cannot contain any special characters (*, #, @ etc.) except dot (.) and hyphen (-) which are permissible. Your ID should be easy to remember such as yourname@finobank or mobilenumber@finobank

Go to Fino BPay app. Click on UPI, you will be asked to register a VPA like yourname@finobank. Once registered, you can add more VPA from the ‘Add VPA’ option in the ‘Manage Section’ of UPI.

Service charges are levied on debit transactions done through UPI; please refer the schedule of charges for more details

  • Login to BPay app and click on UPI.
  • Click on "Send Money".
  • Fill out the details on the screen such as beneficiary VPA or account details, amount and remarks. If you have multiple accounts/virtual payment addresses, your default VPA will be selected for debit. Click on ‘Proceed’.
  • Please review the next screen carefully to ensure you have filled all details correctly.
You can send money by either using IFSC (beneficiary’s account details) or by entering the beneficiary’s VPA.
You can make transaction up to Rs25,000 per bank account within 24 hrs.

UPI PIN (UPI Personal Identification Number) is a 4–6-digit secret code you create/set during the first-time registration with this app. You have to enter this UPI PIN to authorise all bank transactions. If you have already set up a UPI PIN with other UPI apps, you can use the same on BPay. For bank accounts linked to Fino, you can use the BPay MPIN as UPI PIN or create a new MPIN.

Important - Please do not share your UPI PIN with anyone. Bharat Interface for Money does not store or read your UPI PIN details and your bank's customer support will never ask for it.

The service is instant and available 24X7, even on public/bank holidays. Customers can transfer funds in simple steps by providing the virtual payment address of the beneficiary. Also, there is no pre - registration required for the beneficiary.
