Noida: Toll rates were today hiked on the
Delhi-Noida (DND) flyway by NTBCL despite stiff opposition
from Noida Authority.

Tll rate for car has been hiked from Rs 20 to Rs 25,
for Light Commercial Vehicle from Rs 40 to Rs 50 and for buses
and trucks from Rs 50 to Rs 65.

The toll rates for two wheelers, however, remained at
Rs 10.

For large vehicles, there has been a hike of Rs 25.
Drivers will now be charged Rs 90 instead of Rs 65. For extra
large vehicles, Rs 115 rates would be charged, a hike of Rs
30.

The Noida Toll Bridge Company Ltd (NTBCL) hiked the
rates despite Noida Authority officials claiming that no such
step can be taken without their prior approval and issuance of
a notification.

The Authority had yesterday refused to give its nod
after DND officials gave a presentation before it.

NTBCL, however, maintained that Noida Chairman was
only one of the member of the NTBCL Board of Directors and the
majority decision of the Board will prevail.

Earlier, Federation of Noida Residents Welfare
Association (FONRWA) had opposed the hike.

"We have written to UP Chief Minister Mayawati to
takeover the DND Flyway and make it toll free," FONRWA
president N P Singh had said.
