Agency News

New Delhi, May 18: Ministry of Road Transport & Highways on Sunday said that vehicles with invalid or non-functional FASTag will be charged double toll fee applicable to their category.

''The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has issued notification GSR 298 E of May 15 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,'' the Ministry said in a statement.

Before this amendment, the user of vehicle was to pay twice on the fee plaza only if the vehicle didn't carry the FASTag and entered in dedicated FASTag lane, the statement added. (UNI)
