Ministry of Highways temporarily relaxes FASTag Rules for 65 NHAI toll plazas

The Ministry stated that this temporary measure would be adopted for 30 days only for such 65 fee plazas to facilitate smooth flow of traffic and that no inconvenience is caused to the citizens.

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has temporarily allowed select NHAI toll plazas to operate as hybrid, that is, cash plus FASTag lanes.

"Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has decided to relax the conditions regarding declaration of FASTag Fee lanes for 30 days from today at the identified 65 high cash transactions fee plazas of NHAI. The concerned fee plazas have been allowed to convert up to 25 per cent of all fee lanes to hybrid (cash plus FASTag) lanes during this time,"read a note by the Ministry.

“The move comes in the wake of NHAI raising concerns regarding high cash transactions on its 65 identified fee plazas. NHAI has pointed out that most of the fee plazas are functioning with one hybrid lane on each side and while efforts are being made to bring more fee plazas within the ambit, the said identified fee plazas were facing heavy traffic rush on the hybrid lanes,” stated the note .

The Ministry stated that this temporary measure would be adopted for 30 days only for such 65 fee plazas to facilitate the smooth flow of traffic and that no inconvenience is caused to the citizens.

The Ministry has also asked NHAI to ensure that the least possible number of the declared FASTag lane of Fee Plaza be converted into the hybrid lanes temporarily. It also asked that at least 75 percent lanes of these 65 fee plaza remain declared and operational as ‘FASTag lane of Fee Plaza’ in order to incentivize the vehicles carrying FASTag.

“NHAI shall take necessary measures within this time to ensure smooth flow of traffic through the fee plazas and ensure declaring “FASTag lane of Fee Plaza” for all the lanes within this period,” read the statement.
