The Sindh High Court has stopped authorities from collecting toll tax from people travelling to and from Bahria Town Karachi.

The petition said that the Bahria Town Karachi lies within the city limits and the people travel there every day. People have to pay Rs50 every time they cross the toll plaza.

“Toll is being charged and collected from the residents/visitors of Bahria Town, Karachi by the respondents without lawful authority, and even in violation of the terms of the agreement executed between the National Highway Authority and Superhighway Construction Operation and Rehabilitation Engineering Ltd,” the court order said.

The order added that the highway authority was supposed to construct a service road along M9 for visitors from Karachi so that they won’t have to pay the toll. “Instead of constructing the service road, the authority has installed toll collection booths and has been collecting toll from the residents and visitors of Bahria Town.” No toll is being collected from the residents of Gabol Goth that is adjacent to Bahria Town.

It added that no notification has been issued so far by the government of Pakistan for the purpose of collecting toll from the residents or visitors of Bahria Town.

The court has asked the FWO and other respondents to submit a reply at the next hearing. The case has been adjourned till February 25.
