Centre postpones mandatory implementation of FASTags to December 15: Report

It was earlier mandated that, from December 1 onwards, toll payments would be made only via FASTag under the National Electronic Toll Collection (NETC) programme, the flagship initiative of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH).

However, the Centre has decided to keep one lane as hybrid lane which will accept FASTag as well as other modes of payment.
