TOLL PLAZA LAKHANPUR

    Lakhanpur is the major entry point to the State of Jammu & Kashmir. As per law of the land, every vehicle entering or going out of the State has to pay toll tax. Hence Lakhanpur being major entry point to the J&K State every vehicle whether light or heavy, loaded or empty has to pay toll at this point barring few exceptions where the toll is exempted under different SROs. In this connection the Government of Jammu & Kashmir has set up the Toll Post under the administrative control of Dy. Excise Commissioner, Toll Post Lakhanpur for the collection of toll tax under different heads i.e. Additional toll ,Advelorum Tax and Basic Toll. Additional toll is levied on weight and Advelorum Tax is charged on value of goods and the basic toll is charged on vehicles whether heavy or light in nature.

A Brief History

Computerized weighing system at Toll Post- Lakhanpur was inaugurated by Hon’ble Finance Minister, J& K State, Janab A.R. Rather on 6th January’1990. Initially only 2 weigh bridges were installed one for Import and another for Export Section. To coup up the increasing rush of vehicles both at import and export and especially to facilitate the smooth running of the incoming and out going traffic, the toll plaza was constructed, foundation stone of Toll Plaza was laid by Janab Mohd.Shafi, Hon’ble Finance Minister of J&K state on 5th Feb’1997.

With the coming up of toll plaza separate lanes were made for vehicle coming inside the state and vehicles going outside the state. These lanes are further divided according to the class of vehicles i.e for light vehicle like Car/Jeep/Sumo there is a separate lane for Buses there is a separate lane and for trucks there are separate lanes. There are 5 lanes for trucks coming inside the state and 4 lanes for trucks going outside the state. Loaded vehicle coming or going outside the state have to go through the weigh bridges This is the single point where all the information regarding nature of the vehicle and the goods loaded in the vehicle is recorded through computers and accordingly different type of toll is charged on the vehicles and goods loaded on that vehicle
