On the top of it, motorists are being charged fee for “smart” facilities. The contract of two agencies, which had been managing 89 parking lots, ended in January this year. From February onwards, the civic body has been running the lots, but it failed to set an example even after eight months of operating the crucial public facilities. Leave alone “smart” parking lots, even basic facilities are not available with motorists bearing the brunt of it. Lack of attendants, haphazardly parked vehicles and no security are some of the common problems faced by vehicle owners. Not a single facility has the required number of attendants. As a consequence, unguided drivers don’t park vehicles at designated slots, ■ Contract of two agencies managing 89 parking lots in the city ended in January this year ■ From February onwards, MC has been operating parking lots, but it failed to improve state of affairs ■ Most parking lots remain devoid of basic requirements even as motorists pay for ‘smart’ facilities TRIBUNE PHOTO: PRADEEP TEWARI AIR QUALITY INDEX PARTLY CLOUDY SUNSET FRIDAY 6:19 PM » FRIDAY | 22 SEPTEMBER 2023 | CHANDIGARH FORECAST <
The Tribune, now published from Chandigarh, started publication on February 2, 1881, in Lahore (now in Pakistan). It was started by Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, a public-spirited philanthropist, and is run by a trust comprising four eminent persons as trustees.
The Tribune, the largest selling daily in North India, publishes news and views without any bias or prejudice of any kind. Restraint and moderation, rather than agitational language and partisanship, are the hallmarks of the paper. It is an independent newspaper in the real sense of the term.
The English edition apart, the 133-year-old Tribune has two sister publications, Punjabi Tribune (in Punjabi) and Dainik Tribune (in Hindi).
