The West Bengal cabinet today decided to soon come up with a toll policy for the highways under its control in a bid to increase its revenue. West Bengal has around 4,000 km of state highways but toll is levied only on national highways and some state-run bridges. "The tax policy will be decided by the PWD on the basis of the road," state education minister Partha Chatterjee told newspersons after the Cabinet meeting held at the secretariat here today. The West Bengal State Highway Development Corporation has already prepared a policy in this connection, sources in the government said.
