NHAI increases tolls on the highways by 5%

The decision to increase tolls by an average of 5% nationwide has left drivers utilising motorways with higher expenses. This is due to the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI). Originally scheduled to take effect on April 1, the yearly modification of the highway user charge is anticipated to be in the region of an average 5%. However, the Lok Sabha elections caused the raise to be postponed.

The toll price adjustment is a component of a yearly process to update the rates in response to variations in inflation based on the wholesale price index (CPI). The National Highways Charge (Determination of Rates and Fees) governs the user charge collected at about 855 user fee plazas on the network of national highways. Out of these, around 675 are public-funded fee plazas, and 180 are operated by concessionaires.
