The civic body has appointed a contractor for the scheme, who will install software, provide hand-held devices for attendants at parking lots and connect the feed from all the 92 spots to the central server on the BMC’s website.
The hand-held devices will generate e-Receipts, and the software will allow motorists to view online the number of free and occupied slots as and when cars enter and exit the parking lot. The corporation also proposes to issue preloaded cards to car owners for cashless payment.
Initially, the system will be implemented in BMC’s pay-and-park facilities. There are plans to bring similar facilities, at malls, multiplexes, hospitals and other places. The new system is also aimed at reducing parking woes.
Over a year ago, the BMC had floated the idea of a transparent online system, in a bid to tighten security and check private contractors from levying wanton parking charges.
