All vehicles under category M&N, sold after December 1, 2017 are required to be fitted with FASTag by the manufacturer of the vehicle or its authorised dealer, as per a Gazette Notification. To make availability widespread and maximizing existing vehicles to affix FASTags, government has made it mandatory to affix FASTag for issuance of National Permit (N/P).
