The Centre has decided to ensure capturing of FASTag details during the registration process or while issuing fitness certificate to vehicles across the country.

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH), in a letter to NIC, informed that full integration of National Electronic Toll Collection (NETC) with VAHAN portal has been conducted, which went live with API on May 14. Currently, the VAHAN system is getting information on FASTags through VIN/VRN.

In its letter, the Ministry asked to make sure of capturing FASTag details while new vehicles are registered, as also when fitness certificates are issued to vehicles to ply on roads.
