This isn’t the first time the toll tax has been hiked. The last time this was done was in 2017 after the southern loop was completed and the officials had increased the tax on cars and jeeps to Rs. 35 from Rs. 20. Before the hike in 2017, it was hiked in 2016 with the tax on cars being increased from Rs. 10 to Rs. 15 in April 2016.
The Ring Road facilitates the people of the city by offering a speedy and congestion-free route across the city. The final part of the road is yet to be built under a private-public partnership.
