and lack of parking space and unhygienic conditions due to garbage,”said Mundhe during his visit.
The commissioner ensured that the street lights will be repaired at the earliest and action will be taken against the contractor if he fails to fulfill his commitment.
Speaking about the parking issue, he said that the problem arises due to illegal parking in the area which is done by commercial vehicles.
“I have issued instructions to the traffic department to take action in the matter. If there is repeated breach of conditions, particularly by the commercial vehicles, we will have their licences cancelled,” he said.
“There is a growing parking issue in the city for which NMMC is taking urgent measures. The parking areas in commercial places are being opened up. Plan is also being readied for no parking zones, one way roads and parking plots .The residents need to cooperate with us,” he added.
Referring to the complaints of garbage, the commissioner said the problem arises due to the vendors in the area who sell vegetables.
