This arrangement has also been made for the convenience of Fastag users.
Before going to the toll plaza, Fastag users can get the balance status information in the mobile app My FASTag App. Information about the amount available in the fastag in the vehicles can be easily ascertained by color code. Green color code for active (active) fastag means sufficient amount is available. Orange color code means that there is insufficient amount in the wallet. While the red color code means that Fastag has been blacklisted. Users can easily recharge through the Instant Recharge facility when there is less amount in Fastag Wallet or it can also be recharged at the point of sale in toll plaza.
