Starting July 1, entry into Delhi is set to become more expensive as the three municipal corporations of the city are going to increase the toll tax collected from commercial vehicles at toll plazas, posts and barriers.
In addition, smart cards, which will work only on computerised toll plazas, shall be issued to commuters at the same discounted rates and structures which are relevant to pass holders.
North Municipal Corporation spokesperson Yogendra Mann said the toll tax had been revised taking into account the inflation. “The last time the corporations revised the toll tax for commercial vehicles was in 2011, and prior to that in 2008. We have taken inflation into account and increased the tax accordingly,” he said.
Under the revised rates, taxis, tempos and other commercial vehicles under the category will now be charged Rs 65 — an increase of Rs 20. A monthly pass under this category will now be available at Rs 1,950 against the previous charge of Rs 1,350.
Heavy vehicles such as buses and trucks will be charged an increased fare of Rs 120, while six-wheel trucks will now have to pay a toll tax of Rs 225. A monthly pass in this category will cost over Rs 6,000.

The civic body has also warned that penalties will be imposed on those who are found entering Delhi without paying toll tax as per bye-laws.
