NPCI said that Rajiv Gandhi Sea link plaza and Vashi Toll plaza have already enabled the platform, providing seamless, on-the-go toll payments experience. The implementation work at Dahisar toll plaza is underway and is expected to go live soon, it added
ICICI Bank is the first bank to integrate with the FASTag technology at plazas at Vashi, Airoli, Mulund Eastern Express Way, Mulund (LBS Marg) and Dahisar. The bank will continue to work closely with MEP Infrastructure, operator of the toll plazas, to bring in the best practices implemented at national highways, Implementation of FASTag on nearly all the toll plazas of Mumbai demonstrates awareness and acceptance of FASTag among millions of commuters. We are also looking at enabling parking lots with FASTag. With gaining momentum of FASTag across the country, we are confident that it will scale newer heights," said Praveena Rai, COO, NPCI.
