Further the disgruntled residents, most of whom work in the IT companies along the stretch have complained that the hike will only keep private cab aggregates away as they would not like to spend money on the toll each time. Moreover many others have complained about paying increasing tolls for poorly serviced roads along the corridor, in addition to inefficient service at the toll booths.
