Toll Tax Exemption for Defence Personnel
Post Implementation of FASTAG
1. Toll tax exemption is being provided to the Defence personnel on highways/ bridges in accordance with the Indian Tolls (Army and Air Force) Act 1901, which is extended to the Indian Navy as well.
2. MoRTH has assured that the provisions of the Indian Toll (Army & Air Force) Act 1901 will continue to be extended to all defence personnel traveling in personal vehicles on the production of their Identity Card at the toll plazas. In addition, based on prior intimation additional lanes will be opened up to enable smooth movement of military convoys through toll plazas. Towards this, necessary instructions from MoRTH would shortly be passed to the NHAI in line with the Indian Toll (Army & Air Force) Act 1901.
3. In the interim, It is important that the Service personnel are sensitized not to indulge in any altercation with toll operators and any case of denial of toll exemption to defence personnel may be intimated to IHQ MoD (N) / DPS with full details.
