How to update FASTag KYC details before January 31 deadline?


The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) has announced a crucial update regarding FASTag, indicating that those with incomplete Know Your Customer (KYC) details will face deactivation or blacklisting after January 31, irrespective of having a valid balance. The move is part of NHAI’s efforts to enhance the efficiency of the toll collection system, ensuring a streamlined and authenticated process across the country.

NHAI has introduced the ‘One Vehicle, One FASTag’ initiative to further improve the electronic toll collection system. This initiative aims to discourage the use of a single FASTag for multiple vehicles or linking multiple FASTags to a specific vehicle, promoting a more organized and effective toll plaza experience.
