M-tag is the latest technology introduced by FWO (Frontier Works Organization) to smoothen the toll-tax receiving on Motorway. It operates on a pre-paid Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). When you get M-Tag, it is installed on the top right corner of the front windscreen of the vehicle. Each toll plaza on Motorway has scanners that identify the M-Tag. When a car passes the plaza, the scanners scan the tag and immediately deduct toll-tax. This automated system has replaced the E-tag system. The question arises that how to get M-Tag ID.
