To further enhance electronic toll collection, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has decided to waive FASTag fee till February 29.

The government has rolled out the FASTag-based toll collection system across more than 527 National Highways in the country.

NHAI FASTags can be purchased from all National Highway fee plazas, regional transport offices, common service centres, transport hubs, and petrol pumps, among others.

Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari said after the FASTag system on National Highways for electronic toll collection, the revenue per day has swelled to ₹87 crore, from ₹68 crore. 

Once the system is fully implemented, NHAI expects ₹100 crore toll income per day.
