AAI to restructure vehicle parking policy
Kolkata: Airports Authority of India (AAI) has decided to restructure the existing vehicle parking policy at the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International (NSCBI) Airport in the city, in order to ease the traffic congestion.
The policy is aimed at lowering the initial time slab for parking tariff and an automatic system for parking management will be put in place to serve the passengers in a better way.
According to a Press statement issued by NSCBI Airport on Tuesday, the minimum parking charge for vehicles up to 30 minutes has been fixed at Rs 40. Earlier, vehicle owners had to pay a minimum of Rs 100 for parking their vehicles for two hours. If a person had parked his/her vehicle even for half an hour, he/she had to pay the same amount.
The Press statement said that if the whole duration of parking of a vehicle exceeds beyond 30 minutes and remains within 2 hours, the owner of the vehicle has to pay Rs 100. In case of a vehicle parked for up to 7 hours, the owner has to pay a base price of Rs 100 and an additional charge of Rs 20 for each additional hour.
The vehicle owners would be charged at a flat rate of Rs 300 if he/she parks the vehicle from 7 hours up to 24 hours. The access fee for all commercial vehicles would be Rs 60 at the airport. All the private, government or AAI licensed ground transport operators would, however, be exempted from access fee.
It may be mentioned here that the car parking areas are designated and operational throughout the day. Specific pick-up and drop-off points are assigned across the terminals.
Earlier also, the vehicles were charged Rs 20 extra for each hour if the total duration of parking exceeded two hours.
