I work for a Software Industry located @ Siruseri sipcot and travelling daily via this OMR as I am residing in Adambakkam. First of all I wud like to understand why we are paying for the Roads even after paying accurate income tax every year as we so called Salaried employees. As a citizen are we not previlaged to use these road without paying money???? that too Rs 35 for up & down..which is almost a litre of Diesel for which we can travel another 16 to 18kms... I hope you are adopting the policy or methodolgy from the country like US . They do collect Toll but thats just 50cents and their avg income of an IT person wud be 5000$ and also if there is a road with TOll then they have an alternate road with out toll with lesser infrastructure. But here, we are forced to use the OMR and also there is no alternate road so we are forced to pay our hard earned money. First of all, Government must understand that the India is economically growing becoz of their citizens like us also (as we contribute more in terms of paying Tax) so are we not previelaged to use this road with out paying money???if not then we should be given Tax exemptions for this expense becoz its too high for us.. more than a Rs1000 per month. And also the infrastructure is not so good as mentioned by Vikram and not safe also. Give us some valid reason for this RS 35/- per car...Road development centers may think that we stupid guys are earning more money in this IT industry but the inflation rate is going high and expense is tooo high ..still we are struggling to pay our dues for housing loan.. (There are some basic complaint abt our government too, they are not caring their citizens compared to other country like US, uk... ) we are becoming sick of paying this toll ...
Today I travelled from adambakkam to ECR link road via Thoraippakkm and gone to Siruseri via Navalur and returned back to adambakkam via Thoraipakkam gate. I was asked to pay again inspite of having return pass for Rs35/-... this is literally a robbery ..yeah robbery with authorization...
