    Come April 1, 2020, the toll rates for the Mumbai-Pune Expressway will be increased across the board, for all sections of the expressway and all categories of vehicles. The basic fare for the full length of the expressway will go up by Rs 40, from Rs 230 to Rs 270 (for Light Motor Vehicles – sedans, SUVs, hatchbacks). The revised rates will be valid for the next three years, till March 31, 2023. We have compiled a table of the new fares below.

    The Mumbai-Pune Expressway is a 94.5km long, 6-lane concrete motorway which has been open to the public since 2002. It was also one of the first high-speed concrete expressways in the country. The Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) has also partnered with Mahindra to make the Mumbai-Pune Expressway a Zero Fatality Corridor.

    The MSRDC also issued a letter of acceptance on Tuesday to IRB Infrastructure Developers for the rights to collecting the toll on this route for the next 15 years. IRB will be paying MSRDC an amount of Rs 8,262 crore for the collection rights, with the company paying Rs 6,500 crore up front and further paying Rs 850 crore for the 2nd year and 3rd year each. For the fourth year, IRB will pay Rs 62 crore.
