Finally some new which will bring a smile on every one's face. Yes you read the heading right. It is very likely that the cars and SUVs will be exempt from paying tolls in Maharashtra. This initiative is in lines with the present government's poll promise of making Maharashtra a toll free state. The con side of it is heavy duty vehicles will not be exempt from paying toll making the daily essential commodities more dearer as an additional levy is being planned in the offing to offset the reduced income from cars and SUVs. There are 91 toll collections across the state with 23 handles by PWD and majority rest by MSRDC which includes the Bandra Worli Sea link, Pune Expressway etc. MSRDC has strongly objected to this move. Its a wait n watch as of now. The best part would be if the above gets implemented the entry points for Mumbai, Navi Mumbai & Thane would be toll free and this will be a big relief to the these cities.
