Delhi-Noida DND made toll free by Alld HC


Allahabad : The Allahabad High Court today ordered the Delhi-Noida-Direct (DND) Flyway to be toll free with immediate effect. The court said the toll collected by Noida Toll Bridge Company Limited was arbitatory and wrong. A division bench, comprising Justices Arun Tandon and Sunita Agarwal, pronounced the order on a PIL filed by the Federation of Noida Residents Welfare Associations (FONRWA). The PIL alleged that the company was collecting the toll from vehicles through a wrong agreement made with the Noida Authority. But the company pleaded that as per the agreement, they have power to collect toll. The petitioners pleaded that the toll was wrong as the company has already collected Rs 450-crore which was spent on the construction of the flyway. The flyway connects Delhi on the west bank of Yamuna with Noida and East Delhi. The flyway witnessed several protests and demonstrations seeking scrapping of the Rs 28 toll following allegations that the operator of the 9.2-km-long stretch, including the Mayur Vihar link, has already made significant profits.
