Chandigarh, October 8
The Chandigarh Administration has bypassed the Municipal Corporation of Chandigarh (MCC) House to direct levying parking fee and making underground parking lots functional in Sectors 17 and 8.

“A direction to this effect was passed by the Administration to the Commissioner of the MCC, Mr M.P. Singh,” sources in the Administration told Chandigarh Tribune here tonight.

The corporation, sources said, showed ignorance of the directive, but welcomed it as it had to go to the High Court with an implementation report by October 29.

The sources said that when the House could not decide on the matter, it was expecting the Administration to take a decision.

Corporation sources said the Sector 17 parking lot alone could fetch Rs 1 crore.

The sources said they would go into the details of the direction.

The sources said underground parking requires special security arrangements as there was a bomb blast in Delhi in an underground parking.

The MCC has made the underground parking lot in Sector 17 functional as per the Punjab and Haryana High Court direction and would engage police from October 10 to ask the people to use it, the Chief Engineer of the MCC, Mr Manmohanjit Singh said.

The need of the underground parking lot and parking charges was felt in different surveys which indicated that unless charges were levied, this parking lot would remain unattractive.

He said the parking had been made functional for a couple of days and indicators for its use have displayed in all the parking lots.

The Chief Engineer said that the MCC had deployed the corporation staff for persuading the people to use the underground parking lots.

The rates of monthly pass had been kept for a car at Rs 50, half the charge of 1998 which was kept in abeyance after protests.

He said charges were only to cover establishment costs.
