Driving on expressways and national highways are set to become a more expensive affair from next month. Starting tomorrow, April 1, toll taxes on several such roads are set to be increased. According to the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), the toll fees are going to be hiked by up to seven per cent across India, which will make travelling by road a bit more expensive. In 2022, the toll tax range was hiked between 10 and 15 per cent.

According to a report by Live Hindustan, one will now have to pay an additional ten per cent fare for shorter distances. The NHAI said that the decision to increase the toll taxes was taken after considering the increase in number of vehicles plying on expressways and national highways in the recent past. The hike in toll fees, which varies between 3.5 per cent to seven per cent, is based on which route sees major traffic.
