In a move that could be perceived as reneging on its election manifesto, two BJP-ruled civic agencies may increase parking charges in the city.
In the manifesto, the party had promised that it would not impose additional taxes on residents, but the corporations may increase parking charges in their budget. North Municipal Corporation Leader of House Mahendra Nagpal said representatives of three corporations will meet to decide on the hike. “We will keep parking rates uniform across the city. It has been duly decided to keep the rates uniform in corporations,” Mahendra Nagpal said.
