New Delhi: In an attempt to provide convenience to commuters post the currency ban, the government on Friday extended the toll suspension till 14th November midnight for all national highways.
This move by the government will be a relief for many who would be travelling and may be lacking liquid money in hand.
Earlier, the toll on national highways was suspended till November 11 midnight after the government took a major decision to demonetise two big currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 in a major step to crackdown on black money and corruption.
A day after the government announced the currency ban, several people were stuck at toll plazas and faced inconvenience.
Prime Minister in his address to the nation on Tuesday had announced that in order to put a menace and crackdown on black money, the government will demonitise Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes and they will be replaced by new Rs 500 and Rs 2,0000 notes which will be available in the ATMs from November 11.
