Highways tolls across India to go cashless with Paytm-enabled FASTag

India's leading payment and commerce platform, Paytm has partnered with the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to enable cashless transaction on highway tolls across the country.

The Paytm FASTag will allow commuters to pass through 350 toll plazas covering 55,000 kms, without having to stop. The vehicle tag employs RFID technology to allow cashless toll fee payment with the Paytm Wallet. Going forward, Paytm aims to collect over INR 1,800 Cr in toll charges in the coming months.

Kiran Vasireddy, Sr. Vice President, Paytm said, “Cash slows down traffic at important toll plazas as attendants and motorists are left grappling with the hassles of dealing in loose change. The roll-out of Paytm-enabled FASTag will come as a relief to both commuters and toll plaza attendants and help towards the national cause of saving fuel”.

With this move, Paytm is inching closer to its vision of making cashless transactions a way of life across India. This will propel India towards becoming a cashless economy in the truest sense of the word.

Paytm customers can now pay at petrol pumps, grocery outlets, restaurants and coffee shops, multiplexes, local tea or vegetable vendors and even the newspaper vendor who will prefer Paytm because of its seamless payment solutions.
