All India Motor Transport Congress (AIMTC) has criticised the Union Government for collecting toll from road users on National Highway 7 leading to the international airport near Devanahalli. However, because of opposition from the public, toll collection has been temporarily suspended. In a release, president of AIMTC G.R. Shanmugappa said that the State Government should take up the matter with the National Highway Authority of India and ensure that toll collection is permanently stopped in the city limits. The toll collection centres should be shifted to a place 30 km away from the Vidhana Soudha, he added. — Staff Reporter
