    The Government of India recently introduced FASTag in India in a bid to digitise the transactions at toll plaza. FASTag is a rollable tag that allows people to pass through toll gates on the highways without stopping for cash transactions. The feature works by automatically deducting the due amount from users' connected FASTag accounts. Now, Google has introduced a new feature on Google Pay that is aimed to simplify this process further.
