New Delhi: The government has decided not to remove toll plaza on national highways set up by road construction companies.

According to sources in National Highway Authority of India (NHAI), toll plaza cannot be terminated if someone opposes it on the grounds of intrusions by any anti-social elements. Road construction companies hold right to collect taxes from the people by setting up toll plazas.

Sources also claimed, road construction company Super Connectivity Limited, which has constructed Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway has not violated any terms and conditions of traffic on the highway during the time of agreement.

When the toll plaza was built, the flow of traffic was normal. But later, the increase in traffic resulted into massive traffic jams. The government has also issued directions to the company in this regard.
