India’s Ministry of Road Transport & Highways issued a Gazette Notification Thursday according to which all four-wheel motor vehicles sold on or after 1st December 2017 will have FASTags fitted on them by the manufacturer of the vehicle or its authorized dealer, as the case may be.
In case of vehicles that are sold as drive away chassis without wind screen, FASTag will have to be fitted by the vehicle owner before it is registered.

FASTag is a device that features Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology for making toll payments directly from the prepaid account linked to it. It is affixed on the windscreen of the vehicle and enables the drivers to drive through toll plazas.
According to the notification, necessary amendments have been made to the relevant sections of the Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989 in this regard.
