Is it Right we pay toll gate tax?
When we buy a new Vehicle, if it's own purpose , we pay Life time tax.
The road tax varies from 13% to 18% of total cost of vehicle.
For example if we buy Rs.25 lakh innova @18% Road tax , approximately we pay Rs.4,50,000/- to government as Road tax for life time.
For public utility vehicles it varies .
Similarly to fuel(Diesal or petrol) our Vehicles , we pay 100% tax on every purchase.
In addition we pay Rs.8 /- per liter Diesal/Petrol towards - Road & infrastructure cess (The financial bill 2018) .
For every service and spare parts of our Vehicles we pay service and spare parts tax.
Insurance of vehicles have reached the skies, the insurance companies have increased premium to skies.

Why there is no service roads for most of the toll roads(For example BIAL toll road in Karnataka do not have service road. Every toll road shd have service road. Why start and end date, invested amt is not mentioned in any toll gates. No data to public how much is the daily/monthly/yearly collection.
