A senior Huda official said on Friday that two big parking lots in Sector 29 — one in front of hotel Optus Sarovar and the other at Bikaner restaurant-- have been made free. But, there has been no contender yet for eight parking sites in the area. The bidders probably don’t find them as profitable sites, said the official, adding that the authority will float revised tenders for those eight sites.
“We have received nearly 30 bids only for the 46 sites we earmarked. The highest bid offering collection of R6.5 lakh per month came for the parking site near the Gateway Tower in Cyber City,” the official said.
As per the tender guidelines, the upcoming parking lots will be run under strict monitoring and regulation by Huda and lapses on the part of the contractor will invite heavy penalty, including termination of the contract.
