Delhi Bridge Construction Company plans to build a bridge over a crossing. The construction work is expected to last 5 years and will be undertaken by a private sector firm to which Rs. 100 lakhs will be payable at the end of year 1 and Rs. 50 lakhs each at the end of next 4 years.

The annual maintenance cost of the bridge is expected to be Rs. 10,00,000 at current prices. This cost is expected to increase at 7%-p.a. During 16th year after completion, the bridge will require a major repair work requiring materials of Rs. 100 lakhs and expenses of Rs. 100 lakhs, both in current prices. The prices of materials are expected to rise at the rate of general inflation for 16 years and constant thereafter but expense cost is expected to rise 6% over the general inflation for the first three years and then will increase in line with general inflation rate.

The required rate of return may be taken as 17% p.a. and the life of the bridge may be taken as infinite. Number of vehicles using the bridge per day is 20,000 and the toll tax is expected to increase in line with general inflation. Find out the minimum toll tax chargeable per vehicle in the first year of operation so that the investment in bridge may break-even over its life. (Assumption: All annual cash flows arise on the last day of the year.)
