The marketing department may soon introduce time slots for motorists to park their vehicles at rythu bazars in Visakhapatnam city. The move is being mulled to solve parking problems at rythu bazars. If successfully implemented, Visakhapatnam will be the first place to have introduced the system for all ryhtu bazaars in the state.
According to the plans, a parking coupon will be issued to each motorist. This coupon will mention the time slot for which the motorist is allowed to keep his vehicle in the parking area. If the owner exceeds the time limit, penalties will be imposed.
Currently, it is a common sight to see vehicles being parked at rythu bazars for long periods. In some cases, people are also reported to have been using the parking area for their own convenience while they attend to other engagements. None of the rythu bazars have authorities for parking management.
On an average around 25,000 people visit ryhtu bazars every day of whom close to 20,000 come with their own vehicles. Speaking to Hello Vizag, marketing department deputy director P Papa Rao said they were working on the new system to solve the parking problems in the city’s rythu bazars. “We will pursue the matter with higher authorities and shortly introduce new systems for effective handling of the parking at rythu bazars. We decentralised the existing 13 rythu bazars to 93 bazars during the lockdown period,” Papa Rao said.
