National Highway Authority of India (NHAI), on Friday inaugurated the Kashi toll plaza on the Delhi-Meerut expressway.The toll plaza on around 90 km long Delhi-Meerut expressway is completely cashless and the tax will be deducted from FASTag.
The toll manager said, “This is the first 100 per cent ‘digital mode’ toll plaza. Fifty-five rupees will be charged for cars on the 90 km long expressway. Cars without FASTag will be penalised.” To ensure public safety and avoid accidents due to overspeeding and rash driving, the authorities have installed cameras on the toll plaza.
“We have installed cameras to check overspeeding. Toll tax will not have to be paid during entry on Delhi Meerut Expressway. Rather, the toll will be deducted at the exit point. That is, the more the vehicle runs, the more tax will have to be paid,” added Kailash.
NHAI on Thursday, had revised toll fee rates for the Delhi-Meerut expressway by 10-15%. The new rates will be effective from Friday, April 1, 2022, and will vary for different vehicles.

The new rates from Sarai Kale Khan to Rasoolpur Sikrod Plaza are Rs 100 and Rs 130 will be charged to go to Bhojpur.
