Default re: Gujarat: No toll for private cars & small vehicles

This is a good move by the state government; congratulation to the Gujarat Government on spearheading this movement.

Maharashtra decision is only limited to those toll roads which operated under annuity model and have recovered far more than the cost required to be recovered from commuters / road users.

This will also greatly reduce the travel time as only commercial vehicles will stop at the booths.

Very welcome move; hope this is not short lived and repair and maintenance of roads is carried out regularly.

Cheers !

Unfortunately, CM who took this initiative has resigned today, now it remains to be seen if new guy continues with this proposal

There seems to be confusion on the purview of the toll tax. While State Highways do come under the purview of the Gujarat Government - thats not the case with National Highways.

Source: http://www.business-standard.com/art...3000538_1.html

Patel said that surveys are being conducted to ascertain the exact amount of burden that Gujarat government will have to bear for such an exemption. However, the decision is not likely to affect toll booths on national highways as they are out of the purview of the state government.

Most of the major Highways in Gujarat are NH. (Ahmedabad - Rajkot - Jamnagar / Ahmedabad - Vadodara / NH8 that goes to Delhi and Mumbai). So if the above is true, then the actual benefit may not be as widespread.
