The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) has set February 29 as the last date to update the know-your-customer (KYC) rules for FASTag. If vehicle owners do not update their FASTag KYC, it may lead to deactivation.

Here, we decode how to update the KYC and what documents are needed to do so.

What is FASTag?

FASTag is an electronic toll collection system in India that uses Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to enable automatic toll payments at toll booths on highways.

It is designed to reduce the time and congestion at toll plazas by allowing vehicles to pass through without stopping for manual toll payments.
