No toll for the physically disabled on highways operated by NHAI
A colleague who works for disability rights shared the following picture. Looks like all vehicles modified to be driven by specially abled persons are exempted from paying toll on this stretch. Not sure whether the same rule applies to all National Highways.
Edit: Google tells me that the exemption has been in place for more than a year now. Some relevant pointers:
The guidelines issued by the Government clearly state that the FasTags should be issued to such vehicles with proper entries made in the account of the tags being used on invalid carriages. It is fair to assume that these FasTags accounts need not be recharged like normal ones.
The relevant Government orders are enclosed below.
