by then Chief Minister Dr. Farooq Abdullah. The Toll Post is situated about 10
Kms from Jawahar Tunnel on the Kashmir side and is known as the gateway to

The Toll Post is charged with the responsibility of collecting basic Toll from
the vehicles (Heavy Vehicles as well as Light Vehicles) coming from Jammu in the

over the time increased upto to about Rs. 22.48 Crores ending
March 2016. The
