Travelers gearing up for their commutes on the Delhi-Meerut Expressway and the Eastern Peripheral Expressway should brace for a slight uptick in expenses as toll rates are set to rise by 5% effective from April 1st.

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) announced this increase as part of its routine financial adjustments, with the new rates being applicable starting midnight of March 31st.

The Delhi-Meerut Expressway, a vital artery connecting the National Capital Region with Uttar Pradesh, has been a boon for reducing travel time and enhancing connectivity.

Similarly, the Eastern Peripheral Expressway has significantly eased the traffic flow and provided a much-needed bypass for Delhi-bound traffic. However, with the upcoming toll rate hike, travelers will need to adjust their budgets accordingly.

Current and Revised Toll Rates

As of now, the toll for a car journey from Meerut to Sarai Kale Khan is priced at ₹160, and for light vehicles, it’s ₹250. With the impending 5% increase, these rates will see a proportional rise.

Similarly, for cars traveling from Meerut to Indirapuram, the current toll fee is ₹110, and for light vehicles, it’s ₹175. The journey from Meerut to Dundahera costs ₹85 for cars and ₹140 for light vehicles at present. These toll rates will also be subject to the 5% increase, reflecting the NHAI’s adjustment.
