Mathura: The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) has increased the toll tax on Delhi-Agra national highway ranging from 40 to 60 per cent.
    
The increased charges became effective from last night, sources quoting an NHAI notification said.
    
The notification said that from October 16, light vehicles will be charged Rs 80 against the earlier Rs 50 for a round trip, while the commercial vehicles will be charged Rs 125 from existing Rs 90.
    
Similarly, heavy vehicles like trucks will now have to pay Rs 265 against the earlier rate of Rs 190, it said, adding that vehicles with three to six axles have to pay Rs. 415. The heavier vehicles will have to pay Rs. 505.
    
Meanwhile, the increase led to a long traffic jam at the toll booth in Mahuan village near here as the commuters, unaware of the hike, were found arguing with the toll staff over the matter.
    
The jam reportedly continued till the early hours on Tuesday.

    NHAI has increased the Toll charges however the road(Delhi - Agra) is very poor at maximum places from many days. As per condition of Highway NHAI should free this road or if they want to increase the charges then they must maintain the road properly with a effective maintenance system. I a normal citizen of India, am not getting that why the toll charges increased if the revenue generation is already growing by increasing the number of vehicles on road. -Shekhar, Delhi
