NHAI has failed to explain toll revision

City-based citizens group Sajag Nagrik Manch (SNM) has complained to the chief information commissioner that the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has failed to disclose the facts and exact reasons for the increase in toll rates at two spots on the Pune- Bangalore highway. The toll rates at Khed Shivapur in Pune district and Anewadi in Satara district on the highway have been changed with effect from September 9. The revised rates are displayed at both the nakas. In a letter to the NHAI project director in Pune, SNM convenor Vivek Velankar has pointed out that as per the provisions under the Right To Information Act, the NHAI is required to pro-actively publish the facts and reasons for increasing the rates at the two toll nakas. Velankar said the hike in toll rates is nearly 40 per cent and was going to affect lakhs of commuters on a daily basis.
