Those vehicles use FASTags. It is a tag which allows specific tools to automatically deduct the toll charges for the car, without going through the hassle of stopping for cash transactions on the toll gates. FASTag is Radio-frequency Identification (RFID) technology enabled and is affixed on the vehicle’s windscreen. To make the purchase of the FASTags more convenient for the users, two mobile applications are in place. More than 2 million people have now purchased FASTags, which is a magnificent achievement.

The National Highways Authority of India in a recently issued statement said that they are going to drop the construction of the Enchakkal underpass. The primary objective of this construction was to widen the stretch of the national highway from Kazhakoottam to Mukkola. The residents in the area were affected with the sudden change of plans but the same was replaced with delight when NHAI claimed that they are doing so just to construct a widened junction with a systematic traffic signal system at Enchakkal.

The locals in the area issued a protest in the beginning when National Highways Authority of India announced the construction of the vehicular underpass at Enchakkal.
