BMC’s plan to tackle congestion in the island city
In a bid to decrease congestion, the BMC has proposed hiking parking charges across the city, in the western suburbs and eastern suburbs, to Rs 60 per hour, Rs 40 per hour and Rs 20 per hour respectively. The move is aimed at acting as a deterrent against owners using private vehicles. The body has further banned paid parking within 100 meters of any educational institution. Special permits have been introduced for residents’ parking on roads. This is being done to deter people from parking for long hours. Additionally the BMC should come up with plans to tackle unauthorized and free parking which has caused a lot of menace in the already congested city.
After the policy is sanctioned by the committee members, it will be put up online to seek public opinion on the same.We too look forward to your suggestion on the same to tackle congestion and support us to take up better governance. You can send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org
