Noida. From today new rates of toll tax have come into effect on Yamuna Expressway. From 12 o’clock onwards, new rates were being charged. Jaypee Infratech has increased the rate of toll tax by up to Rs 170. For the last 3 years, the company did not increase the toll tax. The rates were last increased in the year 2018. Recently, in the board meeting of Yamuna Authority, the new rate has been stamped. The rates of all the three tolls built on the 165 km long Yamuna Expressway from Greater Noida to Agra have been increased. Three types of vehicles have been given exemption in the new rate.
That’s why there was a need to increase the toll tax on Yamuna Expressway.
According to Dr. Arunveer Singh, CEO, Yamuna Authority, the Yamuna Expressway management has worked out safety measures. More than Rs 130 crore has been spent on this. The Yamuna Authority has increased the toll rates only after all the work regarding safety standards is done. In the 74th board meeting of Yamuna Authority on Wednesday, it was approved to increase the toll rate. Significantly, according to the guidelines of the court, 22 works were to be done on the expressway for safety, due to non-completion of these works, Yamuna Authority was not increasing the toll rate.
