Candies, yet to see them on NICE, but is common in TN and Kerala. Read that Kerala Film Actor Jayasurya collected these candies on his daily route and returned them as toll once he had equivalent no for the toll amount . Toll Booth guys refused to accept it and there was lot of media coverage around that.

Is there any free passage at NICE road.
I ask this because, i have seen in NH 48, there is free passage upto 15KMs radius from your home, provided you show appropriate ID.

Have also seen that during peak times, some vehicles don't pay the toll amount, they just enter and exit.

I'm not aware of any toll-free section on NICE Road.
Some of the tolled NH's exempt 2 wheelers from toll payment but this is not the case with NICE road, even they need to pay the toll.
Surprised that you saw certain vehicles not having to pay the toll, where did you see this and were these cars or 2 wheelers ? I haven't seen any vehicles being exempted - maybe they're NICE officials ?

Is this the updated toll rates based on court (or was it govt ?) order this week? Saw an article in news paper mentioning that NICE road toll will be rolled back.

Travelled from Kanakapura Road to Mysore Road last weekend on NICE Road. Toll Rs 32 for a distance of 8KM.

Alternative: Take the road next to KSIT College on Kanakapura Road. This joins Uttarahalli main road and subsequently the Mysore Road at Kengeri Bus stand. This distance is 9KM & toll free. Road until Uttarahalli main road is excellent. Last stretch of Uttarahalli road is bad.

This was at Ecity entry. These were white board 4 wheelers.
Usually, there is a big rush on friday evenings, so the barrier does not close for each vehicle. So, any vehicle can pass the toll both without paying money. Even at the exits, there is no one checking the receipts and the barrier is always open.
Maybe these are one-off cases and are illegal too.

This is the one which was revised starting from July 1st, 2013. Yes, even i saw that news paper report but not sure on whether the new charges were rolled back.

It must be rolled back, as per Govt order, but some weeks delay may be there. I think NICE played around as most of the toll roads around Bangalore increased toll rates -

Bangalore - Tumkur: 33(previous -31)
Yashwanthpur - Neelamangla - Return rate - 30(previous- 25)
Hosur Road flyover - Return rate - 65(previous-60)

There was some news about this being rolled back but as of yesterday the rates are the same (revised new charges), I paid Rs.90 for Mysore Road-Hosur Road.

Guys,

How is NICE ROad as an alternative way of reaching Bannerghatta national park from North Bangalore.

I understand there is a 15-20 km distance increase when compared to city or outer ring road route, but how about someone hiring a hourly rental car. Does this route make more sense?

@DCEite: that's a good way to reach the park. You'll save the time and fuel from all the bad traffic in that direction.

^^ The only issue in that above route I guess is ORR railway crossing near Yeswantpur. I had bad experiences where traffic snarls ended taking easily above 30 mins here.

Yelahanka new town, mother diary, gangamma circle, jalahalli Air Force station, tumkur road, nice road is an option I would prefer.
