Citizen of Maharashtra can breathe a sigh of relief as the state government has exempted Light Motor Vehicle (LMV) or passenger cars from as many as 53 toll plazas. Moreover, Maharashtra’s Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has announced scrapping of 12 toll plazas in the state effective from June 1, 2015.
However, this exemption will not apply on Mumbai’s five entry and exit points, the Mumbai-Pune Expressway and the toll plazas in Kolhapur. In pre-election times, BJP had promised a toll-free Maharashtra. Now although the political party denies any such promises, it assures on delivering relief to the citizen.
Out of the 12 toll plazas that would be shut from June 2015, 11 belong to the MSRDC while one comes under PWD. In case of the toll points where LMVs and state transport busses would be exempted 27 belong to PWD while 26 come under MSRDC.
