Every year, India witnesses the construction of new highways and national highways, which leads to an increase in the overall road length. Under the guidance of Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, numerous national highways have been built, reducing the distance between cities and enhancing travel time.

However, the construction of these roads requires substantial financial investment from the government, resulting in significant debts. To recover these expenses, toll taxes are imposed on the public.

Importance of Toll Taxes


  • Toll taxes are collected from both ordinary citizens and business owners at toll plazas located on expressways.


  • The revenue generated from toll taxes is utilized by the government to further develop the country’s roads.


  • Fastag, an electronic toll collection system, has reduced waiting time at toll plazas by deducting toll charges directly from vehicles.

Rules and Regulations


While establishing toll plazas, the government has implemented various rules that apply to both the general public and toll booth operators.


  • The government has defined a specific distance between two toll booths, which means that no additional toll can be imposed within 60 km after crossing a plaza. This rule is applicable to all national highways and expressways across India.


  • Each state has its own toll tax regulations that govern the functioning of toll booths within its jurisdiction.

It is crucial for individuals to be aware of these toll tax rules to avoid any inconvenience or financial losses.
