DND Toll-Free: Noida Toll Company Moves Supreme Court Against Allahabad High Court

A day after the Allahabad High Court ruled that commuters using the Delhi Noida Direct or the DND flyway will not have to pay toll to cross the bridge, Noida Toll Bridge Company Limited, the company operating the flyway, has moved the Supreme Court against the High Court ruling. The High Court’s ruling came in response to a PIL filed by the Federation Of Noida Resident Welfare Association. The bench said that since the toll company had “recovered all reasonable returns” from the bridge, it had no right to charge toll on the bridge. The court had also struck down the relevant section of the agreement by which the toll company was calculating its costs and amount recoverable from user fee.
