NICE reduces road toll after Karnataka’s request

Staff Reporter

Bangalore: The Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprises (NICE) on Tuesday rolled back its contentious toll rates in the range of 16 to 33 per cent. The reduction depends on the category of vehicles using the peripheral and link roads built as part of the controversial Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC) Project. The new rates will be effective from January 1, 2009.

Announcing this at a press conference in Bangalore, NICE Managing Director Ashok Kheny said the decision was not forced by the public outcry, but was on the Karnataka government’s request.
