The Municipal Corporation has decided to allot parking spaces in its various parking lots in the wards to the residents on the ‘first come, first served’ basis. “We have several parking lots that we have not been able to auction. So the House today decided to offer them straightaway to the residents on monthly rent,” said Municipal Commissioner Ashish Kohli.

Other approvals

  • The House also approved the Tourism Department’s proposalto run a light and sound show at the Town Hall building
  • The proposals to install electric charging stations at different sites in the city were also approved

The parking slots rented to the residents will bear their name or the vehicle number. “There’s a lot of demand for the parking slots. We already have received several applications. It will be beneficial to both MC and the residents—we will earn some income and they will get a parking space,” said Kohli.

Besides, the House also approved the Tourism Department’s proposal to run a light and sound show at the Town Hall building. “The Tourism Department had given us a proposal for running a light and sound show at the Town Hall building. The department plans to run a 15-minute show, in which the state’s culture and history will be shown. It has been approved,” said Mayor Satya Kaundal.

Also, the House approved the proposals to install electric charging stations at different sites in the city.
