Govt: Statement 

Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has decided that all lanes in the fee plazas on National Highways shall be declared as FASTag lane of the fee plaza w.e.f midnight of 15th/16th February 2021.Therefore, as per NH Fee Rules 2008, any vehicle not fitted with FASTag or vehicle without valid, functional FASTag entering into the FASTag lane of the fee plaza shall pay a fee equivalent to two times of the fee applicable to that category

Happy to look at this. This is one step in the right way. But Ministry should also look at the Fastag issues, and ensure that , the vendor providing the tags is also liable. 

He has very bad experience with icici tag. And now struck with it.

Finally, this decision will be implemented. However, we need 1 more rule, as Trucks and Buses (heavy vehicles) should not enter the Car lane. I am also interested in knowing the mechanisms we have in situation where the vehicle has fasTag but not enough balance or zero balance; they ultimately pay in Cash or start re-charging the Tag and delay the movement of vehicles behind. Although, this generally happens with Trucks, and they very well enter the car lane to block the flow of traffic.

This is the biggest concern. Tags with zero balance should offer over draft with a warning. 

There are numerous cases of fraud by toll operators stating tag is not readable. One should pay double amount.

It will me mess during early days. There will be numerous truck drivers who will fight to no end to avoid double payment(toll fee).  Rules are in right direction. 
There should be rules for toll operator also?

Absolutely agree with @Kshitiz
This scene always happens. There has to be an exclusive lane for the heavy vehicles. 

I doubt if this is going to work.

Hi all,

I completed my road trip to Hampi this weekend. Here are few observations related to tolls:

  • Cash payment is still on-going (Raikal and Shakhapur Tolls on Bengaluru highway); don't know if they were really charging double or not.
  • Gangavathi-Sindhanur tollways were Cash only, at both places 1) Sindhanur-Gangavathi road, and 2) Jabbalguda-Gangavathi road. I used Hospet -NH50-Gangavathi route during return trip. Looks like state highways are yet to implement FasTag.
  • Buses and trucks are still entering into LCV/Car/Jeep Lane; however, movement was fast.
  • I got an overdraft of Rs 25/- 🙂  at nanakramguda toll. My Fastag wallet was low on balance and I did not realize. As soon as I crossed the toll, I received SMS/notification on my eToll icici app that my fastag has been blocked, and minimum recharge amount is Rs 100/-

Hope this information would be helpful

    • Hyderabad, How to remove Bank Hypothecation without agent?
      Received form 35 and NOC from SBI on 06 Feb 2021. I was happy that loan closed but next challenge was how to contact RTO of hypothecation removal.
       
      Searched on internet and there was mixed response. 
       
      Contacted few agents, they quoted me charges ranging from 1200 to 2500 based on how urgent we need it.
       
      But decided to give a try by myself. Searched on net and found below link, 
       
      https://www.transport.telangana.gov.in/html/registration-hptermination.html
       

       
      Once you will click it, it will redirect to other link shown as below
       
      https://tgtransport.net/tgcfstonline/Registration/RegistrationOnline.aspx?Trans=HAT
       

       
      click on Hypothecation/ Hire Purchase/ Lease Termination
       
      If you have original RC then click on YES. Then below window will be open
       

       
      Once you will type above details, in next window you will get your full details. I was not sure whose number to be typed at financer mobile number i typed mine alternate number and it worked 😆. Once click you will be directed to slot booking window (image only for ref)
       

      Click on available slot. Once that is done you will be asked to pay charges. (image just for ref) fees is around 635. Take print out of it (important)
       

       
      Once all done take below document to respective RTA. Below documents required
       
      1. Original RC
      2. Printout of slot booking form
      3. Form 35, 2 nos (original)
      4. NOC from bank (original)
      5. Valid insurance (Xerox)
      6. Aadhar (Xerox)
      7. One small polythene pouch to keep original RC in it. At RTA they are charging Rs 5. And for printout it is Rs 10
       
      also keep below doc in case they want (not asked to me)
      1. PUC Xerox
      2. PAN card Xerox
      3. Residence proof
       
      In my case it was RTA Rangareddy. Mine slot booking was on 12 Feb 2021 01:40 to 01:50
       
      Reached there around 12. Agents started chasing me. But i decided not to pay attention. Went to window No 4. Waited for 10 min.
       
      Officer took my documents checked for 30 seconds and issued me slip. Asked me to go to window 6 for photo.
       
      Went to window 6 waited for 10 min. officer took my slip, done some typing on screen took my photo and signature. And told me that RC will be received via post.
       
      Everything done in 30 min of time, no agent. 
       
      Mine application is approved on same day. Now waiting for RC😏
