Parking a car at the Corporation Car Parking lot in Bapat Galli could be more dearer officially, as the city corporation is getting ready to officially hike the parking fee to Rs.10 per hour.
The current Official price is Rs.10 for 3 Hours.
In June 2014, the Corporation took over the Parking lot from the contractor as he delayed in payment.
The corporation officials are now planning to hike the parking fees to Rs.10 per hour. Speaking to AAB regular people who park their vehicles say that now also they pay the same price. Rs.20 are collected for two hours when officially in the books they are supposed to collect only Rs.10 for three hours.
So this is nothing but making the illegal collection as valid and legal.
As of today the Official parking fees are Rs.5 for two wheeler and Rs.10 for Four wheeler for a duration of THREE hours and Belgaum City corporation has only TWO official parking lots one is Bapat Galli and the other one is opposite Big Bazar.
Parking in Bogarves, next to Lingraj College comes under Cantonment.
