rates for these vehicles have been increased from Rs 3.53 to Rs 4.50 per km.
The HMDA had appealed to the government to revise the toll rates to meet the rising operation and maintenance expenditure of ORR, besides aiding in repayment of loans and annuity.Despite the increase in the toll rates, HMDA authorities claimed the rates on ORR were lesser than the prevailing rates on different expressways in the country. The HMDA authorities have also appealed to ORR users to cooperate and extend their support.
