Tightening its noose on the menace of illegal parking, the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) warned that illegally parked vehicles on Janpath road in Sahid Nagar area would now be impounded.

According to sources, the BMC will also send notices to the houses and malls which do not have parking facilities. 

“We have initiated a process to identify the persons who have taken approval for a housing plan with parking facility but using the parking place for other purposes. They will be served notices soon. We will allow them some time to ensure parking facility as per the plan,” said BMC Commissioner Vijay Amruta Kulange.

The BMC has also directed people, who have multiple vehicles, to strictly adhere to parking guidelines and use multi-level car parking (MLCP) at Sahid Nagar.

The MLCP in Sahid Nagar offers parking spaces for 200 four-wheelers, 300 two-wheelers, and 200 cycles.

Notably, BMC has fixed Rs 10 per hour for a two-wheeler, Rs 20 per hour is charged for a four-wheeler. Thereafter, the parking fee will go on increasing by Rs 5 and Rs 10 for an extra hour for two-wheeler and four-wheelers, respectively.
