Utility: These 25 people do not have to pay toll tax, they can travel anywhere in the country!
The biggest tension is of toll tax as soon as you get on the road. After crossing a short distance, a hefty amount has to be paid in the form of toll tax. At present, the number of advanced and hi-tech expressways in the country is increasing rapidly. After the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway, PM Modi inaugurated several expressways. Many facilities are provided in this express. Also, the travel time has been halved. Now toll tax will also have to be paid when such a big road is available. But there are some people who do not have to pay any tax at the toll booth.
There are some vehicles in the country which do not have to pay any toll. The Ministry of Transport has also released a list in this regard. About 25 people included in this list will not have to pay toll tax. Keeping in mind the safety of vehicles, toll tax is used in road construction. It is under the control of the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI). The government of India has introduced FASTag which is a cashless toll travel process to collect tolls.
