The MC of Chandigarh recently decide to maintain the multi level parking in Sector 17 so they float tenders for this operation because the previous contractor contract is valid till up to 8 August.
Earlier the parking lot was allotted to a private company for three months and because of their poor planning to design and structure. Due to this the MC suffer with heavy loss of 5 lakh Rs per month.
The financial and contract committee (F&CC) of Chandigarh Municipal corporation give approval for the advertisement rights for new contractor for multi level parking in Sector 17.
Now Municipal Corporation decides to pay the contractor Rs 6.2 Lakh per month to manage the parking area. But they have to collect the revenue amount of Rs 1 lakh per month which they have to pay to MC.
This means MC will have to face a loss of Rs 5 Lakh per month.
At the time of inauguration the multilevel parking had received 800 vehicles daily for two to three days. But now it can receive only 250 vehicles on average basis. While the accommodation space is for 931 vehicles in parking.
