Toll fees for EV
To motivate the adoption of green and clean mobility, India is taking step towards the option of concessional for Toll fees for EV. The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) came up with a proposal of new toll policy
The road transport and highways ministry increased the work on the new toll policy, which may also lead to exempting electric vehicles from toll fee or provide up to 50% discount on such Toll fees for EV .
The proposal assumes significance amid the government’s push to motivate the adoption of electric vehicles, as it also recently cut goods and service tax on EVs. Transport minister Nitin Gadkari had recently said that the government will not impose a deadline for transition to electric vehicles.
NHAI has sent out the draft toll policy for consultation in the nodal ministry of road transport and highways which will be sent for Gadkari’s approval soon. NHAI has suggested several changes in the toll policy. The highways ministry had hired Boston Consultancy Group (BCG) to prepare a draft toll policy with NHAI. In the draft toll policy, NHAI has suggested that electric vehicles should be given 50% concession on toll rates, so that the government is able to encourage people to buy EVs and the concession will be applicable for the first five years from the date the policy is announced.
