FASTag exempted vehicles

The Government of India made the use of FASTags mandatory at toll plazas saying that there would not be any further extension to get these tags.

As per the notification, all vehicles should have FASTag. But, certain vehicles are exempted from FASTags. The list has 34 codes, which mentions 34 categories. These include VIPs like President of India, Prime Minister of India, Governors and Chief Ministers, MLAs, MPs and many more.

Besides, recipients of Military awards like Param Vir Chakra and other wartime gallantry awards and peacetime awards, are exempted. In addition to that, ambulance and funeral vans are exempted.

Furthermore, vehicles designed for the use of physically challenged people are also exempted.


Though above-said vehicles are exempted, they will have to use FASTag stickers for the uninterrupted movement of vehicles at toll plazas.

These people can get their FASTag stickers free of cost as per their category. But, they have to apply for an exempted FASTag sticker and submit their application along with relevant documents.
