Toll Tax and NHAI

Dear sir,
will it be possible to take up case with the Government for exemption of toll tax for the ESM, by you? It is one of the demands of all the ESM.
with regards & thanks.

Present Status
I have time and again received queries and complaints on refusal of toll exemption to ex-servicemen / veterans. It is clarified that the Indian Tolls (Army & Air Force) Act, 1901, is NOT applicable to ex-servicemen. Certain Ex-servicemen organizations had been flaunting a letter dated 17-11-2006 supposedly issued by the NHAI in which it was stated that besides serving personnel, even ex-servicemen were entitled to toll tax exemption. The NHAI has confirmed that the letter is fake. Toll exemption is only available to private vehicles of serving personnel.

Comment: Organisations like IESM and IESL should take up the case for Toll Tax Exemption for ESM with the appropriate authority. The RMS forum is only confined to disseminating news to ESM through this blog and emails.
