As the deadline to close FASTag accounts with PayTm has ended, several users have taken to social media complaining that they have not been able to shut down their accounts.

With the rapidly increasing penetration of digital payment methods and the Indian government’s push for electronic toll payments across the country, Paytm FASTag witnessed massive popularity over the last few years. However, in the recent few weeks, the developments related to the Reserve Bank’s order against the Paytm Payments Bank came as a massive blow to the users. The move resulted in the removal of Paytm as an authorised issuer of FASTag in NHAI’s revised list.

The RBI had already advised the users of Paytm FASTag customers to shift their FASTag accounts to other banks to avoid inconvenience and the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) had delisted PayTm as one of the authorised banks to issue FASTags to vehicle owners.
