Everything Dealers Need to Know about FASTag


  • Everything Dealers Need to Know about FASTag

Technology is evolving quickly in India and you need to know how to keep up. One of the upcoming changes is how drivers make toll payments when they are on the road. Up until the end of December 2020, drivers will still be able to pay the traditional way – using cash or credit. However, once January 1, 2021 arrives, they will be required to have FASTag.

What Is FASTag?

FASTag is an electronic toll collection system that is operated by the NHAI. It is a technology that is based on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), which allows drivers to make toll payments without the need for cash or even credit or debit. They don’t even need to stop their car to pay their toll. The FASTag is adhered to the windscreen of their car and scanned whenever the car passes through a toll plaza. The toll is automatically deducted from the driver’s prepaid FASTag account.

Why FASTag?

The use of FASTag has significant benefits for drivers, as well as the highways systems of India. Drivers can move through toll plazas without the inconvenience of stopping or waiting in a lineup of vehicles. This can significantly cut down on their driving time. The FASTag system will keep traffic moving smoothly, preventing congestion at toll plazas. Best of all, the Indian government is offering 2.5 per cent cashback on toll payments made using FASTag.

How to buy a Fastag?

Drivers can get a FASTag from anyone of 23 certified banks, at National Highway toll plazas and through online retail platforms such as Amazon, Snapdeal, and Paytm. Once they have their FASTag, they can link it directly to their credit card, bank account, or wallet. Drivers can top up their prepaid account at any time and every time they go through a toll plaza, they will receive an SMS text message alerting them to the toll payment.

How TiA Industry Accelerator (IA) can help your customers with FASTag?

How does FASTag affect buying a new vehicle? Before that vehicle can be put on the road, a FASTag must be acquired and the account set up. This is yet another item in the long list of things a new car owner must deal with before they can drive off the lot.

The TiA Industry Accelerator is part of the Tangentia Intelligent Automation (TiA) Platform. The TiA IA is built to serve the needs of various industries, offering deployment-ready software solutions built to accelerate business processes. It is built with the automotive retail sector in mind and provides you with digital worker capabilities that allow you to:

  • Streamline the collection of vehicle owner data from multiple outlets
  • Automate all aspects of purchasing a vehicle from one convenient platform
  • Enhance your customer service and increase satisfaction
  • Automate mundane tasks for automotive dealerships so you can focus on core competencies
  • Ensure regulatory and legal compliance in the automotive industry

The capabilities of TiA Industry Accelerator (IA) can be extended, modified or customized, depending on your needs, making it the ideal solution for all your process automation, including the purchase and setup of FASTag.

At Tangentia, we are ready to partner with you to offer smooth and speedy FASTag compliance for the vehicles sold under your dealership as mandated by the Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH), India. This is a must since, as of April 1, 2021, new third-party vehicle insurance will be issued only if the vehicle has a valid FASTag.

So, let TiA IA help you help your customers purchase the vehicle they want without all the hassle that comes with a vehicle purchase. When you can do this, you will provide your customers with a superior buying experience, enabling them to hit the road immediately.

Tangentia at Vibrant Goa Global Expo and Summit 2019

  • Tangentia at Vibrant Goa Global Expo and Summit 2019

Think Global, Act Local

Tangentia was Gold Sponsor at Vibrant Goa 2019, Goa’s largest international business expo & summit, which kicked off to much fanfare on 17th October 2019 at the S.P Mukherjee Indoor Stadium, Panaji.The 3-day event saw an average of 50,000 footfalls per day, with participation from 56 countries, 20 Indian states & over 3000 businesses.

Tangentia’s booths showcased our acumen in end-to-end solutions for Automation, B2B and Digital. On display were some of Tangentia AI’s interactive bot’s letting visitors get a first-hand feel of how automation and Tangentia.AI is transforming industry processes and experiences.

Visitors to Our Booth

The Tangentia booth had a lot of footfalls – we did not count but surely more than a couple of 1000 over the 3 days. We had delegates from 42 countries visit us and more than 500 business cards. Some of our visitors were quite high profile and can be seen above.

“My Mantra for Success” Campaign

A huge hit at the event was Tangentia’s “My mantra for success” contest. The campaign witnessed 1000+ contestants battle it out online for a chance to win an Amazon Echo every day.The contest was also a great opportunity to interact with the budding goan talent pool of engineers, developers and management professionals, much of whom were fascinated by Tangentia’s AI operations, robotics and internship opportunities.

Tangentia Knowledge Session “The Future of Work, Bots, and AI is here”

Tangentia received a positive response from a number of industry partners, officials as well as local government bodies, who appreciated Tangentia’s longstanding contribution towards Goa’s push towards digital transformation.

Tangentia also organized knowledge sessions at the event for delegates and visitors, with the “The Future of Work, Bots, and AI is here” session highlighting work done by Tangentia AI experts in the fields of Robotic Process Automation, Blockchain, and Machine Learning.

“I Love Goa” Buttons from Tangentia

The Tangentia I Love Goa buttons were a huge success with nearly 1000 of them distributed amongst the attendees. We even had our humble button get a few selfies with some big-name personalities like Mr. Piyush Goyal – Minister of Railways & Commerce Government of India, Mr. Pramod Sawant, Honorable Chief Minister of Goa & Mr. Jagat Shah – Chief Mentor Vibrant Goa.

Canada-Goa B2B Meet

As a Canadian headquartered company & with our CEO being the head of the Canadian delegation to Vibrant Goa, the “Canada-Goa B2B Meet” sponsored by Tangentia was a great opportunity for Goan companies looking to do business with Canadian companies in India or looking to expand to Canada. Discussions were held with the Canadian Delegation about their businesses, plans & aspirations for India & Goa as well as collaboration opportunities.

FOHO (Fractional Ownership Homes)

Another highlight of day one was the grand launch of FOHO (Fractional Ownership Homes), a fresh take on the idea of home ownership. FOHO is the latest addition to Tangentia Venture’s vast portfolio of businesses and startups.
FOHO is a unique opportunity where unconnected buyers collectively & securely own the freehold of a home better known as fractional ownership. We are a more cost-effective alternative to whole ownership of a holiday home with the additional benefit of potentially growing your investment. We’d say that we are smart second-home ownership opportunities.
Learn more at www.FOHO.haus

Our CEO Vijay Thomas summed up the expo perfectly.

“The world is on the cusp of a revolution with multiple market forces like globalization, digitalization, remote working, global creative class, work-life Balance, Blue Economy, fractional ownership of assets and shared services becoming prevalent. Goa could become one of the global leaders with its ability to provide the platform for many of these market forces. Vibrant Goa showcased all that exists in Goa, and more so showcased what was possible in the future and from what we can see the future is exciting for sure. We at Tangentia are really excited about the Goa story and would invite everybody worldwide to come and have a look at what Goa has to offer.”

The Team at Tangentia looks forward to participating in Vibrant Goa 2020 in Dubai.
