New Delhi, Dec 21 (IANS) A total of Rs.4,595 crore has been collected from 348 toll plazas across India in the current fiscal up to November 15, parliament was informed on Monday.

“Fee is levied and collected on small stretches of National Highways,” said Minister of State for Road Transport and Highways Pon Radhakrishnan told the Rajya Sabha in a written reply.

However, due to public opposition, toll plazas in Suratkhal-Nantoor section of National Highway (NH) 66 in Karnataka, Nellore Bypass of NH 5 in Andhra Pradesh and Kalamassery- ICTT Vallarpadam of NH 966 in Kerala could not collect toll fee since some months, the minister said.
