According to PTI, the Madras High Court has directed the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) to start providing a separate lane at toll plazas for VIPs and sitting judges across India. This decision was made by the high court to curtail the unnecessary harassment and delays faced by VIPs and judges at toll plazas, as per the report.
A bench comprising of Justices Huluvadi G Ramesh and MV Muralidharan passed the interim order directing the NHAI to issue the circular to all toll plazas across the country. The circular orders them to provide a separate lane so that vehicles of VIPs and sitting judges can pass through without any hindrance.
The High Court has also warned that they would issue a show cause notice to the concerned authorities unless the circular was issued and that any violation of the order would be viewed seriously.
