Gurgaon: Vehicles belonging to villagers near the Kherki Daula toll plaza on the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway will be exempted from toll fee and issued toll-free tags, officials said on Tuesday.

This was decided in Gurgaon onTuesday at a meeting of officials of the district administration, concessionaire and residents.

The Millennium City Expressway Private Limited (MCEPL), the concessionaire company of the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway, agreed to issue toll free tags to people from 31 villages near the Kherki Daula toll gate.

Local villagers have protested on many occasions against paying toll fee.

People earlier also forcibly opened the toll gates, allowing all vehicles to pass without paying toll fee.

However, MCEPL officials announced that they will at least charge toll fee from commercial local vehicles.

The meeting was attended by Gurgaon's Joint Commissioner of Police Saurav Singh, Sub Divisional Magistrate Vatsal Vashist and MCEPL CEO S. Raguraman among others.

"We had issued notice to the toll operator company and asked villagers about their problems. We discussed these issues and will reach some permanent acceptable conclusion within a week," JCP Saurav Singh told IANS.

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar had assured toll exemption for local residents during his Gurgaon visit on November 29.
