DPM: No toll hikes this year, Govt to pay out RM400mil in compensation

PUTRAJAYA: Motorists nationwide can breathe a sigh of relief as the Government has decided not to raise toll rates this year.

However, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said this move will cost the Government RM400mil, as compensation to the various toll concessionaires.

The Deputy Prime Minister made the announcement Wednesday, after chairing a special committee to tackle the rising in the cost of living here, adding that the decision was made during a Cabinet meeting.

Muhyiddin also announced an allocation of RM120mil to Fama, Nekmat and Nafas to ensure sufficient food supply in the market.
