The Hindu

BANGALORE, MARCH 30. The Mayor, R. Narayanaswamy, and the Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP) Commissioner, K. Jothiramalingam, have appealed to vehicle owners in the city to comply with traffic rules and park their vehicles in an orderly manner in parking zones after the free parking regime comes into force from April 1.

In a press release, the Mayor and Commissioner said that "the success of the new system is in the hands of vehicle owners."

"We appeal to vehicle owners to cooperate with the BMP in making free parking system a success. We want them to ensure safe parking without causing any hindrance to the smooth movement of traffic," the release said.

"As decided by the BMP Council, the pay-and-park system will end from April 1. Free parking will be available for citizens on the existing designated `pay-and-park' lots. However, the pay-and-park system will continue in parking lots on Brigade Road, Commercial Street, BMP complexes and multi-level parking lots," the release added.
