GUWAHATI, Nov 5 � The Kamrup Metro administration and the Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) will soon carry out on spot verification documents regarding building permission and car parking provision of establishments in GS Road.
Senior officials told The Assam Tribune today that the response from business establishments in GS Road regarding a notification issued in September seeking detailed compliance report with regard to off street parking provision has been mixed.
�The administration gave enough time to such establishments and their owners to respond. While some did submit detailed compliance reports, many others have yet to furnish the information. Some others have responded with only petitions mentioning status of building permission and provision of parking relevant to their respective establishments without the requisite details making it difficult for to assess the situation,� said a senior official.
He said indefinite leeway cannot be given and strict action has to be taken or else the entire exercise would look just like eyewash.
The civic administration and Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) had earlier announced their plans to make the entire stretch of GS Road a �no-parking� zone from Ulubari to Khanapara by January 1, 2015. All establishments were asked to make their own provisions for parking.
The administration had then said that all establishments which have failed to adhere to the relevant laws and provide parking space to visitors and customers would be closed down.
It is noteworthy that the district administration and the City Traffic Police have already imposed a �no-parking� zone from Ganeshguri Flyover to Last Gate. Sources said the result of the experiment has been good so far and the administration is looking to adopt measures in the entire stretch of the GS Road to remove congestion and help in smooth flow of traffic.
