CHECK THE DISTRIBUTION OF PASSES
Rajesh Sharma is a Congress leader What criteria should be adopted by the Chandigarh MC to issue free parking passes? The municipal corporation should come up with clear-cut criteria regarding the issuance of free parking passes. The categories of people entitled to free passes should clearly be mentioned. Steps should be taken to ensure that the criteria are adhered to. Any deviation from the criteria from issuance of passes should be viewed seriously. In case a decision is taken of doing away with passes, the authorities should reduce the rates of monthly passes. A councillor should be given a parking pass only for the vehicle registered in his name to check the extra distribution of passes. The corporation should crosscheck and segregate the valid passes from the invalid ones, so that people who have done nothing wrong do not suffer because of those who have actually broken the law.
