MC House to take call on parking rates today
Whether or not the rates of the 26 paid parking lots, including the Sector 17 multi-level parking, in the city will be increased and whether 64 more lots will be converted into paid ones will be decided at a General House meeting of the the Municipal Corporation tomorrow.
During the elections, MP Kirron Kher said she would not let the parking rates be increased.
Now, with what face are they bringing the agenda to the House meeting. The BJP is unnecessarily burdening people with additional taxes,” said Leader of the Opposition and senior Congress councillor Devinder Singh Babla.
However, senior BJP councillor and parking committee chairman Arun Sood said, “We are not going to increase the rates, only hourly parking rates will be levied. For the first time, we are going to provide the facility of five-minute free pick and drop at all paid parking lots.”
