The Bhubaneswar Smart City Limited is coming up with a parking master plan for the state capital to regulate the parking service. On the other hand, the municipal corporation has also amended a rule and decided to collect a one-time fee for parking at multiple parking lots.
The aim of the parking policy is to guide the development of planned parking facilities, while parking management plan will take care of the existing parking scenario and suggest measures for improvement.
The municipal corporation’s plan was to divide the parking lots into five different zones and collect a one-time fee for parking at multiple parking lots within the same zone in the stipulated time. Now, the corporation has decided to implement it and hold a fresh auction of the parking lots.
The initial deadline to introduce the service was April 1, but was extended to July, since the civic body didn’t get many takers for parking lots.
Currently, the civic body has 76 parking lots, in which most of them are not operational.
