In a statement issued on Sunday, the Ministry clarified that this has been done to further promote fee payment through digital mode, reduce waiting time and fuel consumption, and provide for a seamless passage through the fee plazas.
The Ministry had mandated fitment of FASTag in M and N categories of motor vehicles, with effect from January 1.
Category ‘M’ stands for a motor vehicle with at least four wheels used for carrying passengers.
Category ‘N’ stands for a motor vehicle with at least four wheels used for carrying goods, which may also carry persons in addition to goods. (UNI)
