Making a statement in the Legislative Assembly, Fadnavis cited the decision on the levy of toll at five entry and exit points in Mumbai and on Mumbai-Pune Expressway would be taken after the high level committee headed by Additional Chief Secretary (public works) submits its report on July 31.

Out of the 12 toll plazas, 11 belong to the MSRDC and one of PWD. While of the 53 toll nakas where light motor vehicles and state transport buses will be exempted, 27 belong to PWD and 26 are of MSRDC.

The BJP had promised a toll-free Maharashtra if elected to power after the Assembly polls in October last year.

However, the party after forming the government had taken a U-turn saying it had never said so but assured that it would provide some relief to people.
