The North Municipal Corporation is ready to implement its reformed parking policy and as part of that, the civic agency will begin using handheld devices in the 64 parking sites under its jurisdiction.

The corporation, however, maintained that it will take some time to get these handheld devices connected to the central server, that will enable it to keep track of every car entering the parking site and for how long it is parked. "Initially, the plan was to connect these devices to a central server so that we have parking records for a month, based on which we can float fresh tenders without losing money to contractors, but that will take time.
