The toll for vehicles on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway, the first access-controlled road of the country, will increase by 18 percent from April 1, officials of the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) said.
A senior MSRDC official said on Tuesday that though the toll increases by six percent annually, it is implemented cumulatively at 18 percent after every three years, as laid down in a government notification of August 9, 2004.
The new toll will be Rs 320 for four-wheelers like cars and jeeps instead of the current Rs 270, and Rs 495 for vehicles like mini-bus and tempos instead of the current Rs 420, another official said.
Toll for two-axle trucks will increase to Rs 685 from the current Rs 585. For buses, it will increase to Rs 940 from Rs 797.
