Toll rates announced for different vehicle categories on Bengaluru-Nidaghatta section; National Highways Authority of India issues notification

Mysore/Mysuru: The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has decided to begin the toll collection on the 118-km 10-lane Access-Controlled Mysuru-Bengaluru Expressway (NH-275) from Feb. 28, on the Bengaluru-Nidaghatta stretch.

The NHAI has issued a notification in this regard this morning stating that the toll will be collected from 8 am from Feb. 28 (Tuesday). The toll will be collected at the toll plaza set up at

Kaniminike-Sheshagirihalli villages.

“The main carriage of six-laning of the Bengaluru-Nidaghatta Section of NH-275 is completed and  National Highways Authority of India headquarters has issued an order to start collecting the toll. After a meeting with the Deputy Commissioner and Superintendent of Police Ramanagara, it has been decided to collect the toll from 28.02.2023, 8 am,” the notification signed by NHAI Project Director B.T. Sridhara read.

The Expressway project has two packages — the first one runs from Bengaluru to Nidaghatta in Maddur taluk for around 56-km and the second package, which is 61-km long, connects Nidaghatta to Mysuru. The toll levying for the second package that connects Nidaghatta to Mysuru will be implemented later.

While one toll plaza has come up at Ganaguru after Srirangapatna near K. Shettihalli, the second toll plaza has been set up at Kaniminike near Kumbalgodu (Bidadi). At Kaniminike, there are two plazas for onward and return journeys and tolls will be levied. In all, there are three toll plazas but the toll will be collected only at two places, NHAI officers said.

    Toll is to be collected from 27th Feb 0800 hours. Not 28th as mentioned in the article. At about Rs 2.50 per km that is fully operational now, it’s on the higher side.

  2. Sathish S says:

    Kindly complete the work and then collect the toll. Still Near Mandya and kalastavadi work not done completely.Make sure that servcis road work completes, and dailywise maintain the road properly. I dont know whether the news spreaded rightly or fakely , if it is right then then pls complete the service road work and then collect.

    Here the toll collection arrives. These rates are for a start. One could easily see them tripling with 2 years, as the Highway gets congested , and the vehicles begin to crawl. One could see then the express trains from Mysore becoming the choice for passengers.
    Given the experience of toll -collecting highways like Mysore-Nanajangud highway littered with bad pot holes, road surface peeling off etc.., but still the toll rates maintained, the initial enthusiasm will die down soon.

    Any one interested in a kind of small car or buggy- which can zip below the barrier? Can introduce this to MYS BLR commuters who don’t want to pay

  7. Howdy, Modi! says:

    Given the state of corruption in Narendra Modi’s India, not all toll money collected will go to the government. This is rich picking for the toll gate administrators who will share the slice with other highway officials.
    This will not prevent Narendra Mosi bull shitting about India, its advancement etc.. while inaugurating this project, which will not work well anyway-too many cars, too many entrances and exits, poo r quality road material etc.. This is independent India, Jai Hind!!
