All you Dilliwallas listen up! After struggling with traffic and congestion woes for so long, the government may have finally found a solution to it all. Read on to find out more!

Congestion Toll On 21 Roads | Delhi may become the first city in India to levy a toll on vehicles entering severely congested roads! Now that’s some news! The idea behind the implementation of this toll is to ease traffic and check the alarming pollution levels in the city. 

The city’s Lieutenant-Governor Anil Baijal has identified a total of 21 congested roads in the city, including the corridor between Aurobindo Chowk and Andheria More, Nehru Place flyover to Modi Mills flyover, the ITO intersection and areas around Hauz Khas Metro Station. 

We don’t know yet when the toll charges will kick in or how much tax will be levied. The move is still in the cards and a lot of planning and approvals are required as of now to push it to the implementation stage. 

So Dilliwallas, you better start finding alternative routes if you’re travelling through congested roads - stay glued to this space for more updates!
