Nagpur: Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithiviraj Chavan today said the state government will soon make an announcement in connection with reduction of power tariff while toll tax will be reviewed within a week's time.

The government had appointed a sub-committee headed by Industries Minister Narayan Rane on November 19 which submitted its report recently.

Accordingly, an announcement on giving further subsidy will be made on January 20, Chavan told reporters here.

Chavan, who was in the city to distribute the awards in the co-operative sector said the government was seriously reviewing the toll tax in the state and the minister concerned has been asked to prepare a detailed report on it.  

Accordingly, the MSRTC buses plying outside city limit will be exempted from the burden of toll tax.

The entire issue is being re-examined in the wake of protests in certain parts of the state, he said.
