West Bengal NH toll plazas ready for FASTag Official
| Tuesday | 3rd December, 2019
Kolkata: All the 15 toll plazas of the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) in West Bengal are ready for implementation of FASTag from December 15, a senior official said on Tuesday.
The Ministry had announced that from December 1, toll payments on highways would be accepted only through FASTags, later extending the deadline to December 15.
"All the 17 toll plazas under my command, including 15 in West Bengal and one each in Jharkhand and Odisha, are ready with the requisite infrastructure for FASTag," NHAI Bengal Chief General Manager (CGM) R P Singh told PTI.
While the NHAI will continue to operate at least one 'cash lane' in each toll plaza, vehicles entering the FASTag lanes without the tags will have to pay double the toll, the official said.
"We are distributing FASTags for free at all the toll plazas but some banks are also selling them," he said.
