Soon you will shell out lesser amount of money on your drives as Maharashtra government plans to review state’s road toll policy and scrap up to 40 road toll plazas. Pre-elections, BJP had announced that it would make Maharashtra a toll-free state if elected to power. According to state’s PWD minister, Chandrakantdada Patil, a committee led by infrastructure sector expert PP Joshi will review the existing the road toll policy and make necessary changes to it.

In an interview to ET, Patil said that the state government is working on measures to decide whether private light motor vehicles (cars) can be exempted from road toll while an additional toll of about 5 percent can be recovered from commercial small and heavy vehicles.

Now although a revision or toll policy may provide some relief to the citizen of the state, Mumbai residents may still have to pay the existing fare on special city projects like the Bandra-Worli Sea Link.

    That’s good news. But I see a new toll coming soon near panvel! Also, expressway tolls have been only increasing & I think after initial recovery the tolls should go down slightly to aid maintenance.
