Drive to Shimla will become costly by March (2012) end as a new toll booth will start collecting toll tax near Chandimandir on the newly four laned Parwanoo Zirakpur stretch of NH 22.
The rates which have been forwarded for approval to the Ministry of Road are Rs. 23/ for private cars, Rs. 39/ for taxis and mini trucks while bus and trucks will be charged Rs. 70/ for one way trip.
This toll will be in addition to the entry tax being paid at Parwanoo when entering Himachal Pradesh.
Non Himachal registered vehicles will have to pay another tax while entering Shimla city where the local Municipal Corporation has imposed ‘Green Tax’.
Traveling by own car, one will have to pay Rs. 23/ at Chandimandir, Rs. 30/ at Parwanoo and Rs. 200/ at Shimla.
Traveling to Shimla is definitely going to be a costly affair now !
