Guwahati: The Kamrup metro district administration has asked the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) to verify the parking provisions of commercial establishments in the city.
Kamrup metro deputy commissioner M. Angamuthu in a notification today directed the GMC commissioner S. Vishwanathan to carry out an inspection to verify whether proper parking provisions were maintained by all the commercial establishments, including hotels and hospitals.
Angamuthu asked the GMC commissioner to take immediate action against the defaulters to the extent of cancellation of the trade licences if required and submit a compliance report with 30 days.
The deputy commissioner also directed the GMC to formulate an effective parking plan for the arterial roads such as GS Road, RG Baruah Road, Fancy Bazar and VIP Road among others.
“The emphasis should be put on underground as well as multi-layer parking in and around the city to relieve the public in general from the inconvenience of traffic congestion,” the notification said.
The Kamrup metro district administration, as of its drive to clear the secondary channels in the city, directed the municipal corporation, Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority and the PWD (roads) to carry out an extensive drive to identify and clear illegally constructed slabs over drains and remove the construction material dumped into drains.
The deputy commissioner asked the departments to furnish action taken reports within 30 days.
The Kamrup metro administration has observed that a sizeable number of land owners encroach on the city’s footpaths/bylanes and roadside government land by carrying out extension of their highrise buildings, dumping construction material and constructing slabs over drains.
