The Government of Tamil Nadu fixed toll rates under the Indian Tolls Act, 1851 for various categories of vehicles using the Rajiv Gandhi Salai (Phase I). The toll rates were fixed for a period of 30 years from the 1st July 2006 to 30th June 2036 with an increase of 10% on existing toll rates every two years. Government permitted IT Expressway Ltd to collect toll in the Project road for the above period.
However, actual toll collection was started with effect from 15-12-2008 at the rates fixed for the relevant period. This fact was also widely published in the print media. The toll rates fixed by the Government are for single trips only. However considering the representations received from various quarters, IT Expressway Ltd fixed concessional rates for return, daily and monthly passes for various categories of vehicles, trip based passes for cars and also for monthly passes for Local Commercial vehicles.
The toll rates are for the period of two years from July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2014 for various categories of vehicles and also the rates for concessional passes for the said period are as follows:
