The whole argument is being led by Justice Thakur and he says that inspite of collecting hefty toll charges, maintaining roads in bad conditions is not acceptable as people have to suffer from two things-hefty toll and poor roads.This is definitely a welcome move by supreme court to make sure roads are properly maintained. But things are easier said than done in India, so far there are no special mentions on how this order will be implemented and how can people argue with toll persons regarding this toll issue?
It would be better if Govt. make a list of these poorly maintained roads and showcase to public so that they can skip paying these tolls on those highway stretches. There are several cases where contractors are starting collecting toll charges even before road construction works are fully completed. Govt should make sure these orders are properly implemented otherwise there is no purpose issuing them.
