    • Now the Kelapur toll road is built, it's 4 lane now, I had travelled in the month end of February,    Once you cross Maharashtra rto, be careful after 15 to kms at the bridge near tippeshwar tiger sanctuary gate, there is uneven bridge, you will get sudden deep down at the bridge.      Once you approach hinganghat there will be few diversions.        I had reached in 7 hours from Hyderabad to Nagpur.
    • All,   I am planning for drive from Bangalore to Jharsuguda(Odisha) (Via Hyderabad - Nagpur - Durg). Its little urgent and dont want to take option of flight because of COVID19. Even though domestic travel is not so risky but i have to come back as well and at that time how the situation will be i am not sure about.   I am well aware of Bangalore - Hyderabad as yearly  4-5 trips i do. But never driven Hyderabad to Nagpur. I would like to know how this stretch is, if i plan to start from Hyderabad early morning 4 AM.   Could you please share if you have recent experience or otherwise as well.
    • Friends, am planning road trip from Hyderabad to Lucknow. Appreciate if anyone have a recent experience. Will be going by Creta. Thx, Ajay

    • Hi all,   I need a small suggestion regarding SBI Fastag. I purchased a Tiago car recently and dealer gave a SBI Fastag along with the vehicle delivery. After using it for couple of months I found that SBI Fastag is the worst one when compare to other providers. As I purchased new car this Fastag came with only with vehicle engine and chasis numbers not with Registration number which is obvious, but later I tried several times to update my Registration number by sending RC copies to their customer care email ID but they never happened to update the number. And one more thing I found is SBI is charging 7.5% of convinience charge which is very high. Is it possible to buy another Fastag from PayTM and stick the new one to my car in place of old SBI Fastag and forget about old one without closing that SBI Fastag? As I have gone through the deactivation process and learnt that it is toooo complicated one. Please suggest to me to get new Fastag and leave about old one.   Bandari   Sent from my ONEPLUS A6000 using Tapatalk    
    • Today, I drove from Pune to Hyderabad and the road condition is good.  I started by 6:45 am and reached Hyderabad(Madhapur) by 2 pm.  I would strongly recommend getting a FastTag for your car as you can save a lot of time if you have FastTag.  In many Toll gates, I saw a very big queue almost 30~40 vehicles in a single toll gate while rest of them are reserved for vehicles with FastTag.  FastTag toll gates were almost free all over.
    • I would say a total of about less than 20 km, including the diversions and the under construction.  
    • I think it completely depends on the owner of the petrol station. 

      Personally, I prefer HP and BP inside city limits.
      On highways, I don't trust any brands. 

      On highways, I am using only Relaince. I felt the quality of Reliance is good based on mileage.  
    • Thank you for the update. 

      How many kilometers of bad patch is still pending?
    • Modern cars can run upto 3 lakhs.
      It depends on the condition of the car. 

      You can is is 1.2TDI or 1.5TDI?
    • Thank you for the update. Any bad patches?
    • May-June it will be too hot in Hampi
