State-owned oil corporation takes a leaf out of NHAI’s FASTag system

State-owned oil and natural gas company, Hindustan Petroleum, has announced a new cashless fuel payment option called HP-Fastale. Set to be rolled out at 18 outlets in Mumbai, Vashi and Thane on July 1, the latest method of payment has been developed in association with AGS Transact Technology. It utilises radio frequency identification similar to FASTag adopted by the National Highway Authority of India.

Users can register for it by web or a mobile app, after which they will receive an RFID ring inside the fuel lid of their vehicle. At the pump, the RFID tag will ensure the right amount of fuel is dispensed and also help prevent fuel pilferage. User will be required to top up their e-wallets ahead of the transaction, similar to other services like UPI or PayTM. The service will be expanded to 200 locations across the country by the end of the year.
