In order to tackle space crunch for parking of vehicles in the city, the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) has identified seven sites, which will be developed as parking lots.

The senior deputy mayor, Yashpal Batra, accompanied by other MCG officials, on Thursday surveyed the city and identified the sites at Jharsa, Dundahera, Phuhara Chowk, Sikandarpur, Jacobpura, Sohna Chowk and in the backyard of the old office of the MCG.

The civic body will soon float tenders for these parking lots, which are expected to be operational in a couple of months.

New sites were identified a day after MCG commissioner Sudhir Rajpal and mayor Vimal Yadav appointed a team under the senior deputy mayor to find out vacant or unused plots.

"Once these facilities become operational, they can be good source of revenue generation for the corporation, besides bringing respite for thousands of commuters who can park their vehicles," said the senior deputy mayor.

The corporation is also aware of several parking mafia who have been running illegal parking lots across the city.

"But, our main objective is to give commuters space for parking and generate revenue to be used for further development," the mayor said, adding that these sites would be developed as multi-level parking in future.
