Easy Steps To Deactivate Paytm FASTag And Buy New One Online

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) instructed Paytm to stop taking deposits and top-ups from any clients after February 29, therefore users of the highway are now encouraged to purchase FASTags from 32 authorized banks rather than Paytm Payments Bank (PPBL).

The final deadline has been moved up to March 15; after that, Paytm FASTags will not function. However, under the frequently asked questions (FAQs) released by the RBI, customers will be able to close their previous FASTag and get a refund.

“It is suggested that you procure a new FASTag issued by another bank before March 15, 2024, to avoid any inconvenience,” the FAQs stated.
