Travelling at Pune-Mumbai Expressway? Now pay toll via FASTag and get cashback
Pune: Are you travelling via Pune-Mumbai Expressway? Now whenever you visit toll plaza on this route, pay toll through FASTag and get a cashback of five percent. The Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) said on Thursday.
Similarly, if you are at Bandra-Worli Sea Link, one can avail the cashback by paying toll through FASTag from January 11.
The cashback scheme was launched in a move to increase the number of vehicles use FASTag service, the transport body said. FASTag programme utilises radio-frequency identification technology, which gives travellers a smooth passing at toll stations without waiting for long. The payment is made digitally through the FASTag linked to the bank wallet.
Vijay Waghmare, Joint managing Director of the MSRDC said, "During every journey, five per cent of the toll amount will be directly deposited in the FASTag account of vehicle owners travelling on Mumbai-Pune Expressway and Bandra-Worli Sea Link."
The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has appointed MSRDC as a Nodal agency to make the necessary infrastructure for FASTag system at toll plazas around Maharashtra.
FASTag has been implemented on Mumbai-Pune Expressway, Bandra-Worli Sea Link, Satara-Kagal highway and four entry points of Mumbai, according to MSRDC.
