No issues you will get the reminder within a week.
Previously Fastag was extremely quick within 2 kms you cross the toll the alerts were there in the mobile. Am getting my 10 per cent reversal.

Sakarpur (Kothakota) has been revised from 56/- to 55/-

FasTag was a mixed bag on my return trip.
Hoskote guys let me through free as their equipment was not functional.
Devanahalli aka the toll near BIAL on NH44 said they do not have a scanner, either automatic or manual, and they noted down the tag serial number manually.
Marur guys insisted that I pay either in cash or by card. They claimed that FasTag is working only in Hyderabad-Bangalore direction. And, if I insist on paying through FasTag, I need to take a U-Turn and pay in the other direction, do towards Bangalore and take another U-Turn at the next gap in divider and come back and he will allow me to go since he would recognize me.

Most absurd thing I've heard!
This should be reported to NHAI.

Do the toll booths on this route accept Paytm ? I am yet to get the FASTAG so was relying on Paytm for the time being. (it works fine on the Hyd ORR and pretty quick)

Not sure about PayTM, actually NHAI tied up with Mobikwik for toll payments. Unclear about rollout plan yet - http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/...cle9386731.ece

Edit - South is not yet operational with that plan I guess. They plan to do it by end of year apparently. http://www.business-standard.com/art...0200840_1.html
Since it is a private player enabling it, hopefully it will get on soon.

Wow, how innovative of them.

As we discussed during last TBHP meet at Kurnool, none of the booths were accepting Fastag. Including the BIAL one on NH, I had raised a complaint in both PG Gov portal and IHMCL.

This was sometime in Sep start. The PG portal complaint, though had mention of all toll booths on Bangalore - Hyderabad route was somehow forwarded to KA region NH incharge. Later the complaint got closed with a reply from BIAL toll incharge saying they have checked and verfied that Fastags are working for their toll (Which from your comments and those of others seems to be true)

The IHMCL complaint went without any reply till 01 Dec when I got a mail from them asking for clarification. I have replied them with details requested by them, yet to get any response to the same.

Below is reply I got from PG Portal complaint -

Hello folks,

Planning a trip to Hyderabad from Bangalore on 26th. My destination is Greenpark. Hoping to start by 4:30 AM which means I should be at A1 Plaza for breakfast and reach my destination for lunch.

Please advice on the best route to take after I reach Hyd city limits.

Thanks
Cheers

Google Maps will show you the best route via the P.V. Narasimha Rao Elevated Expressway.
Take that.

Shamshabad Airport - Straight on NH44 - Aramghar - take PVNR Expressway - Masab Tank - Take Masab Tank Flyover - Lakdi Ka Pul - Khairatabad - Turn Right at Khairatabad Junction Signal - Raj Bhawan Road - Turn Right at Somajiguda Circle Signal - TS CM's Camp Office - Keep Left on Service Road (Do not take Flyover) - Turn Left at Greenland Junction Signal - Hotel Green Park will be on the Right (you might need to go upto Dharam Karam Road Signal and take a U Turn).

Hi All

Planning a trip to Hyderabad with wifey and kiddo; though I have gone thru the forum to understand the routes et al. But still need some more details and clarity on the following:

- Leaving BLR on the 24th early morning by 4. Best place to stop over to stretch and have a breakfast etc. The desirable things remain the way are, clean restrooms, parking space etc

- Any places to visit specifically; we have planned Ramoji, The Zoo, Science centre and planetarium etc, if something else can be suggested as well. We are staying in Hyderabad for 2 days around Hitech city, and accordingly the itinerary is or will be planned like that.

- Anything to be careful about like interceptors, speed limits etc. Any recommended fuel bunks

- Importantly any idea if the e-wallets like Mobikwik and/or Paytm are accepted; I do not have FasTag, any ideas from where can I install it.
NPV, hyd_traveller, bblost, ranjitp1 or frequent Hyderabad travellers, request your inputs.

Thanks
Rishi

All options for food alone - kamath about couple of hours in the journey, then blue moon or kurnool for lunch depending upon time taken and breaks, snacks at food pyramid about 120 kms before Hyderabad. Have a look at the Kurnool meet thread, you possibly will find GPS coordinates too. All the places have clean restrooms and parking space

Interceptors generally reported after Devenahalli and nearing Ananthpur though I didn't find any last week when I travelled back.

Plenty of fuel bunks on both the sides though I don't have any recommended ones

Paytm and cards accepted at the tollls.

For ramoji film city would suggest an entire day.

I don't know about the Bangalore side but here (Hyderabad) we have fog in the morning.
At 4 AM the visibility will be quite poor.

Agree with Bblost, starting early in the morning at 4, you encounter lot of fog here in hyd, should be the same there in bang too, so drive safely. When it comes to food, if you are starting that early you can reach hyd by lunch time & have amazing hyderabadi biryani. If you are adventure freak you can try wonderla which is opened in Hyd too.

Thanks bblost - Bangalore encountered dense fog for the first time this season today morning around 4. I am keeping that in mind, and might change my departure time basis the fog.

Thanks

Hope you've seen the earlier posts on your options for breaks/food.
I think near Gooty is your best bet for breakfast - Blue Moon, then A1 plaza both on left and Ravi Theja on right. Blue Moon was quite new and food was decent (I traveled in August).

Further up towards Hyderbad you have Food Pyramid. Details in earlier posts like these:
