The toll charges for Mumbai’s renowned Rajiv Gandhi Bandra Worli Sea Link have surged by approximately 18% starting from April 1, as confirmed by officials from the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation.

Effective immediately, the new toll rates for one-way journeys for cars and jeeps will be Rs 100, while minibusses, tempos, and similar vehicles will incur a fee of Rs 160. Two-axle trucks traversing the cable-stayed bridge over the Arabian Sea will be subjected to a toll of Rs 210 for a one-way trip.

Previously, motorists using the eight-lane overpass were charged Rs 85 for cars and jeeps, Rs 130 for minibusses, tempos, and light commercial vehicles, and Rs 175 for two-axle trucks and buses. These rates have been enforced since April 1, 2021.

The Bandra Worli Sea Link serves as a crucial link between Worli in the Island City and Bandra in the Western suburbs of Mumbai, facilitating smooth travel in the south-and-north-bound directions and circumventing traffic congestions in Mahim, Dadar, Prabhadevi, and Worli areas. The revised toll rates on the sea link, operational since 2009, will remain applicable from April 1, 2024, to March 31, 2027.

According to an MSRDC official, motorists can avail of a 10% rebate on purchasing booklets containing 50 toll coupons in advance and a 20% rebate for 100 toll coupons. Additionally, the rates for return journey passes and daily passes, valid till midnight, for frequent travelers will be 1.5 times and 2.5 times their respective one-way toll charges. The cost of monthly passes will be 50 times the respective one-way travel rates, the spokesperson confirmed.
