Parking menace: NOIDA to take stern measures
With the number of vehicles increasing by the day, <g data-gr-id="36">more</g> number of vehicles are being parked on the roads and open spaces reserved for some other purposes. The worst affected are residential colonies where residents park their vehicles in an unruly manner. As per the reports, the authority has now decided to impose heavy fines, seal buildings and even cancel lease deeds of allottees who are not using the parking lots as per the sanctioned plans. “The city has its own building bylaws hence allottees are to abide by them. Under the existing bylaws, parking spaces have been reserved for all categories of land users but <g data-gr-id="34">majority</g> of people prefer to park vehicles at other places,” said a senior official.
The official said that several developers have also flouted the layout maps and even after sanctioning the parking lots, <g data-gr-id="31">majority</g> of the buildings and offices use them for other purposes. “Despite reserving parking spaces, employees park vehicles on the roads which create chaos. As there are <g data-gr-id="29">large number</g> of offices, hospitals, schools, colleges, shopping centres and malls in the city, it creates a mess all the time,” added the official.
It may be noted that there are nearly four dozen parking lots in the city but some contractors are running illegal <g data-gr-id="20">parkings</g>, encroaching on roads. The worst hit areas are Gol-Chakkar, <g data-gr-id="25">Mamura</g> Chowk, Labour Chowk, Sectors 62, 63, 121, the service road along NH-24, Udyog <g data-gr-id="26">marg</g>, Atta Market, Sector 18, The Great India Place mall, Model Town crossing, NIB and Chhijarsi T-points on NH-24, Rajnigandha Chowk, etc.
