Maharashtra toll waiver to bring down burden on Mumbaikars’ wallets

MUMBAI: Not much though, state's toll waiver will bring down a little burden on Mumbaikars' wallets who commute to and fro distant suburbs and cities like Pune, Nashik and Goa in their cars and SuVs. But since the loss of toll from private cars may be recovered from other commercial vehicles, it might also trigger the cost of transportation of goods and thus the cost of commodities.

Of the 65 toll posts where state announced total waiver to cars and state transport buses on Friday, six fall around Mumbai which are mostly used by the traffic travelling to and fro city's distant suburbs in Thane and Raigad. Here, motorist travelling to Pune, Nashik, and Goa will also save on toll expenses.

The toll booths around Mumbai where the waiver will benefit motorists are; Wadkhal toll post on Alibaug-Pen-Khopoli road, Kasheli toll booth on Bhiwandi-Wadpe road, Kamothe toll post on Sion-Panvel highway, Gaimukh toll post on Thane-Ghodbunder road, and two toll posts at Katai and Gove villages on Bhiwandi-Kalyan-Shil road.

However, on city's six toll booths, five of them on the fringes of the city (at Vashi, Airoli, Mulund, Bhandup, Dahisar) and on Bandra-Worli sea link which are used most frequently by Mumbaikars and the one on Mumbai-Pune expressway at Khalapur and Talegaon, the toll waiver announcement may take some time. This is because the state has appointed a committee headed by additional chief secretary (PWD) to check if these toll booths can offer any toll waiver to private cars and state buses. The report is expected to be out by July end.

According to transport experts the move will bring a relief of minimum Rs 70 to maximum Rs 200 for Mumbaikars who move through distant suburbs such as Ghodbunder road Bhiwandi-Kalyan road and Sion-Panvel highway. These toll booths charge minimum Rs 30 to 40 one way. Interestingly, Wadkhal is the only toll post among the six where toll collection will be completely withdrawn whereas on rest of the five toll posts only cars and state buses will get waiver even as commercial vehicles such as trucks will have to pay.
