New Delhi: Stressing on the need to bring more vehicles under the ambit of insurance, Gadkari said FASTags should be made mandatory for obtaining vehicle insurance.

"There should be a rule that along with other documents, FASTags should be mandatory for requiring vehicle insurance," Gadkari said on the sidelines of a workshop on motor vehicle insurance and road safety here on Tuesday.

According to IRDAI, about 40% of vehicles in the country are not under the ambit of insurance. Commercial vehicles are highly compliant, at 80%, while only 60% of private four-wheelers in the country are insured.

The government has mandated electronic toll collection via FASTags across national highways.
