It seems an official proposal has been submitted to the Municipal Commissioner to disallow all multiplexes, shopping malls, hotels and other commercial establishments from collecting parking charges from customers.

Apparently, the PMC had offered free Floor Space Index (FSI) to these establishments for their parking areas, which means these guys are making a killing on such charges, which range from Rs.10-20 for a two-wheeler and from Rs.25-50 onwards for a four-wheeler.

This sure would be great news if implemented, AND provided there is enough space. Most of the times, the parking space at INOX and E-Square is full by sundown itself, causing a heck of a jam on the nearby roads.
