In case you want current updates on the route (as well as some discussion on the entry tax), refer to my (much more current) Puri travelogue.

There is a way to avoid this Tax
Take NH5 from Balasore pass via Baripada, Bahagoda, Chinchira, Kharagpur
But its passing through Maoists and Naxal infested jungle (Night driving is totally not advisable and road condition ain't that great either)

I did write to the Central Ministry and they replied with a copy they had sent to the Chief secretary of Orissa asking him to explain why such a tax was being enforced. I was supposed to be getting a copy of the reply, but unfortunately that has not arrived. Recently a friend of mine had to pay the same tax. I am travelling to Bhubaneshwar next week. What should I do? Pay, flee or fight?

I have travelled into Orissa twice since the time I was forced to pay, however both those occassions the car was able to drive through without stopping.
So I guess this collection thing, depends on the celestial formation of the time.
