Great news !!!

The list is out on ABP news.

53 toll plazas where private vehicles are exempted:

12 toll plazas which are shut:

So looking at the list the major toll plazas are still excluded, like the Mumbai entry point, Mumbai Pune eway. So are the daylight robbery tolls named Khed Shivapur and Anewadi toll plazas on NH4. Complete hogwash

That's a super great news. I go to office in navi mumbai on Friday from kalyan and then directly go to pune using 4 wheeler. Will save 60 Rs. toll one way from June 1. Although you can bypass kharghar toll while going to pune, thats a 4 km detour and some bad road too.

Govt. is also considering about toll on expressways, which we all want to be reduced. Mumbai Pune Expressway is collecting toll for more than 14 years now and a fair amount of money has been collected till date.

Apart from LMV, the ST buses will also be excluded from these tolls so expect MSRTC to gain some profits.
