FASTag was introduced to avoid excessive time and traffic while traveling on highways or tolls. But now it has become mandatory for everyone, now you will find FASTag installed in every small and big vehicle. If FASTag is installed in your car, then you do not have to stand in line to pay toll and it also saves you a lot of time. But sometimes it can also be a burden on you, let us tell you the whole reason behind it.
Keep this in mind while selling a car
Whether the vehicle is old or new, now all vehicles are fitted with FASTag. It is affixed on the windshield of the vehicle like a sticker. The FASTag sticker is now pre-installed in the new car, you do not need to get it installed. For this you have to link your bank account and e-wallet. This results in loss if you sell your vehicle and forget to deactivate it from the app. Because even after the vehicle is sold, the FASTag payment continues to be deducted from your account wallet.
