Porting Your Paytm FASTag: Important Information



While your question about porting your Paytm FASTag to another bank is understandable, **currently, porting FASTags is not possible**. They are linked to the specific vehicle and Paytm account they were issued for and cannot be transferred.



Available Options:



  • Deactivate Your Paytm FASTag:**
  • Get a New FASTag From Another Bank:**
  • Transfer Vehicle Ownership (With FASTag):**


If you no longer need the FASTag or want to switch to another bank, follow the steps in my previous answer to deactivate it.

Several banks offer FASTags. Compare features and fees before choosing one and purchase a new tag linked to your preferred bank account.

If selling the vehicle linked to the Paytm FASTag, transfer ownership to the new owner. However, additional requirements and procedures may apply depending on the bank and state regulations. Check with both parties beforehand.


I understand this might not be the answer you were hoping for, but I hope it clarifies the current situation with FASTags and helps you choose the best course of action based on your needs.
