Toll Tax on Jalandhar - Pathankot - Mata and Amarnath Pilgrims Upset

Another Toll Tax Plaza is being readied in Punjab . This is on the Jalandhar - Pathankot - Jammu National Highway at Bhangala just short of Beas Bridge at Mirthal. The Toll Tax  Plaza is ready but it seems in view of the Punjab Assembly Elections it has not been operationalised. There exists great resentment among motorists of Punjab and this may affect the Votes .

The National Highway ( NH-1 A ) connecting Jalandhar GT Road with Jammu - Katra and Kashmir Valley is the lifeline for pilgrims visiting the Holy Shrines of Mata Vaishno Devi ( Katra ) and the Annual Yatra of Baba Amarnath ( Pahalgam - Kashmir Valley ).

The proposed Toll Tax Plaza at Bhangala - Mirthal would hurt the pilgrims and the pilgrims wish this proposed Toll Plaza to be withdrawn.

Highway Toll Plazas - End The Cult of VIP ism

In Independent India there are no VIP Indians or Non VIP Indians but only one Category i.e. INDIANS.

No where is this pernicious Cult of VIP ism more in play  than at Toll Tax Plazas where they have a separate VIP Passage where so called the privileged take a QUICK AND FREE passage where as the under privileged are made to wait and pay.

  Every one deeply regrets the incident at Shambhu ( Ambala - Rajpura GT Road ) barrier. After all employees do only what they are told to do.

But the Mushrooming Toll Plazas have made the ordinary motorists extremely unhappy.

The VIP passage should be open only for Police / Army and ambulances. The rest should join the.queues and feel proud to be with the Common Indians and not a Class above them.

The long lists of those Exempted should be cut drastically. It is stated that President of India is exempted. Well Presidents have and rightly so special planes and they do not use Highways.

In the Long Exempted List why are Physically Handicapped Car Travelers not included ? Why So. ?

Small cars like Maruti 800 and Nano cars should be exempted from paying Toll Tax .

Presently a Nano car is made to pay the same amount as a BMW !

Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Appreciate it. Steven Y Son

I appreciate what you have done here. I like the part where you say you are doing this to give back yet I would expect by every one of the remarks this is working for you too. Stephen Coleclough
