Welcome to the 12th and the final episode of Season 1 of the Mark and Embark Podcast by ScoutMyTrip. The host for this episode is Myra Naik. 

In this episode Myra talks about one of the niftiest innovations in the technology space to hit Indian Highways - The FASTag! 

Haven’t you been seeing the FASTag mentioned on the news pretty often? In fact, it was recently declared that the FASTag will be made mandatory in a few months for all vehicles. So what exactly are the uses of a FASTag and why should you get it?

The FASTag is essentially a reloadable tag that allows you to pass through toll plazas without having to stop to pay the toll charges by cash. The FASTag allows automatic deduction of the applicable toll charge from a linked prepaid account. The tag works on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology. Once the tag is activated, it is attached to the windscreen of the vehicle. From thereon, you can go through toll plazas without having to stop, and the charges will be deducted automatically. It is currently functional at 420+ toll plazas across the country.
