Udupi, Dec 23, 2018: A WhatsApp message stating that Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari has himself told that road users who pay toll and then return from the same route within 12  hours, need not pay toll again.

NHAI authorities say WhatsApp messages need not be believed and that they have no such official information.

Deputy Commissioner Priyanka Mary Francis said NHAI Project Director has clarified that this was a false message.

Shivaprasad Rai, Manager of Hejamady, Talapady and Sastan Toll Plazas said  road users have to pay toll even if they   return within 15 minutes. Even if a motorist has paid the return toll then the same would be printed on the bill and is applicable for 24 hours, he added.
