How to get M-Tag for Motorways

What is M-Tag?

M-Tag is a pre-paid Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) that is installed at the top right corner of the front windscreen of a vehicle. There are scanners installed on the motorways’ toll plazas to scan the passing through vehicles. These scanners read M-tags on the vehicles as they pass through it and the applicable tax will be deducted automatically. M-tag system is being managed by FWO (Frontier Works Organization). M-Tag system has replaced the earlier E-Tag System which was being managed by NADRA.

M Tag is mandatory for every vehicle traveling on any motorway and no vehicle can run on motorways after June 2019. Its means, if your vehicle doesn’t have an M-Tag ID, you will not be allowed to enter motorways. So it is very important to get your M-tag to avoid any difficulty on Motorways. Here we will provide complete details about getting, using and recharging of M-tag.

This system has helped to automate entry/ exit at motorways and to minimize waiting time at toll plazas. Such type of automatic systems are already working in many developed countries like Dubai, European and American Countries
