Odisha government has decided to provide a 40 per cent discount to Electronic Vehicles (EVs) on parking lots in Bhubaneswar.

The Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has issued an order to the parking lot vendors to provide the discount to the EVs in the Capital City.

“In a bid to encourage sustainable transport in the city, discounts to EVs of all categories will be given for the next two years,” said a BMC official.

“As per the new norms, around 10 per cent of the total parking area in Unit-I and five per cent of other places will be earmarked for parking cycles and no parking fees will be charged for those,” the official further said.

BMC has a total of 74 parking lots and 30 among those have already been auctioned. Tender for the rest of the 44 parking lots has been floated recently.

As per BMC sources, selected vendors will be provided POS machines to ensure transparency in parking fee collection. The vendors will also be given proper training to this effect after the completion of the auction process.

The civic body has also issued a guideline for the vendors to display a board mentioning the name of the parking lot, tender details, area of parking, rate chart. 

Besides name and contact numbers of the Zonal Deputy Commissioners and Traffic ACP should also be mentioned on the board for redressal of grievances. Any vendor found violating the guidelines will be imposed a fine of Rs 10,000, added the BMC official.
