New Delhi: The Supreme Court of India on Friday ruled that the Delhi-Noida Direct ( DND ) flyway would remain toll free. The SC put stay to Allahabad High Court's order, making the 9.2 kilometres, eight-lane DND flyway toll free.

The decision was taken by a bench of Justices JS Khehar and L Nageswara Rao. The panel has also asked the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) to verify the cost of the DND flyway project and submit a report as soon as possible.

The bench stated, "We have requested the CAG to verify the cost of the project..." It said further, "We refuse to grant any relief.

It may be mentioned that the toll collecting firm had plead for interim stay on HC order stating that it did not take into account all aspects on which the cost of around Rs 12.5 lakh per day had been incurred. The apex court bench headed by the Chief Justice had had replied, "You have only 10 kms of highway and you claim that you have made a road to the moon. ... You have done well but not something great."
