I don't remember if it came with the car when I purchased it 4-5 years ago. I assume it was attached by the service center in the recent years. Is this the fasttag nfc tag? Does not seem like it.

It was present in my car as well since beginning. It also has warning written that do not peel it off.

They would link it to your aadhaar. Which would link to your bank account. Toll tax directly deducted from your account! ?????

This is why I am not a fan of bbps. They would eventually link all public utilities to Aadhaar > Bank account. People would have no control over the bill payments.

i wonder how do i find the vpa of my own fastag. it is also amazing to see people so cheerful about paying toll tax just because there is a cool technology involved in paying through it.
