ICICI Bank launches ‘Amazon Pay ICICI FASTag’; Here’s how to avail benefits




Today, ICICI Bank becomes the first bank to collaborate with Amazon Pay for the issuance of FASTag. The bank announces its association with Amazon Pay for the issuance of ‘Amazon Pay ICICI FASTag’ will enable users to order, track and recharge conveniently and in a digital manner.

The government had made it mandatory for all vehicles to have a FASTag since February 16, 2021. Customers who pay in cash will need to pay twice the amount. FASTag is a device that uses Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology for making payments without stopping at National Highway tolls. FASTag is affixed on the windscreen of the vehicle and enables its user to make the toll payments directly from the linked prepaid or savings/current account.

The ‘Amazon Pay ICICI FASTag’ will help in enabling seamless movements across parking areas and National Highway toll plazas, thereby providing convenience to all the users of Amazon Pay, even if they are not customers of ICICI Bank.

This partnership helps users to purchase and recharge FASTag online, rather than visiting toll plazas.

Gaurav Arora, Director & Head, Everyday Use Cases, Amazon Pay, said, “Amazon Pay ICICI FASTag offers a safe & contactless payment solution, reduces cash dependency and enables a seamless travel experience for customers.”

In addition to this, there’s also a launch offer through which users can earn a fee waiver of Rs 100 for applying till March 31, 2022. Amazon Prime members can also earn a benefit of 1 percent cash back, with an upper limit set to Rs 1500 per month, on toll transactions.

Currently, More than 615 toll plazas of NHAI (National Highways Authority of India) and more than 100 toll plazas on state highways have adopted FASTags. The number will be going to increase.

Here’s how to avail Amazon Pay ICICI FASTag:

The process to order the tag via Amazon Pay is fairly simple. You will need an Amazon Pay account though.

First, go to the Amazon Pay screen on the Amazon app. Once there, find and click on the “Recharge & Buy Fastag” button which will be under the Recharge section.

This will take you to the next screen where you need to click on the yellow “Buy Amazon Pay ICICI FASTag” button. This should open an ICICI bank webpage in your phone’s browser.

Once on the page, enter your personal details and vehicle details. Then, verify your mobile number through an OTP and complete payment. The order will be placed.
