    For Mumbai crowd, its now official that the Toll near Kharghar on Sion-Panvel highway is waived off, also the toll near Fountain hotel at the end of Ghodbandar road also is been waived off for all private Car's, SUV's, state transport buses, but all T permit vehicles will have to pay the toll.

    This toll does not need to be operational at all. The contract amount has been recovered long time back. A known source told me that the toll has been in profit for the past couple of years and is filling the pockets of few politicians

    Why not NH4? Without proper roads people are paying toll happily,at least till 6 laning completion , govt should have stopped taking tolls,shame.Seems like mostly favourable to the North Maharashtra.

    Closure of tolls is ok, infact great. but now who will maintain the road? It should be NHAI or MSRDC(in case of MH).
    Fact is the roads where tolls are closed are in very bad state or are deteriorating very quickly and badly.
    I observed this firsthand in my recent highway trip. The stretch between Jalna-Mehkar-karanjalad towards amravati from aurangabad is not that good and few stretches of 5-10 kms are horrible.

    In comparison to this Chhattisgarh govt has done a great job. They have taken over from the private developers and its owned by state now. They charge a nominal amount just to maintain the road and no profit IMO.

    MSRDC if it maintains, then again it will have to levy toll to cover the expenses. IMO it will be PWD which will be given the onus to maintain, PWD in turn will appoint private contractors to do the job. This means more under the table income for PWD employees who till date were denied of their birth right to earn income from other sources.

    After closing the toll booth I am pretty sure road condition will be worse for years and years. Lets be prepared for worst roads in India in MH state.

    Bravo fiats!! What a timing to launch Avventura! For Avventura, don't care who maintains the roads.

    Anyways, It is good to have partial waive off, as it is the trucks which do more harm to the roads, and toll collected from them can be used for maintainance of the roads.

    @Ganges, NH4 is property of the central government so Mr Gadkari will decide about it.
