Four big establishments in Gautam Budh Nagar received notices from the city magistrate on Tuesday for illegal parking. The move is part of the district administration’s efforts to come down heavily on establishments that contribute to chaos on roads by allowing illegal parking outside their premises.
City magistrate Mahindra Singh sent notices to Logix Mall in Sector 32, Amity University in Sector 125, U-Flex Company in Sector 60 and Accenture & Metlife offices in Sector 135 in Noida. The notices were sent to the management of these establishments.
The notice states that all the defaulters should stop the vehicles coming to their premises from parking illegally by October 30. If the firms fail to act by October 30, they will have to appear in the city court to give an explanation on why their permits and licenses should not be cancelled.
“Nobody is above the law and senior management needs to take responsibility if their mismanagement is creating any public nuisance. Strict action will be taken against anybody who breaks the law and creates inconvenience for the citizens of this district,” Gautam Budh Nagar district magistrate BN Singh said.
Notices were sent after the traffic police wrote to the district administration urging it to act against establishments that are creating traffic problems for citizens.
After analyzing the traffic and parking issues, the DM had asked city magistrate Mahindra Singh to start sending notices to errant establishments.
The city magistrate had then asked the traffic police and local police station to prepare a list of educational institutions, malls and other organizations that are illegally parking in public spaces despite having their own parking areas.
These notices were sent under Section 133 (conditional order for removal of nuisance) of Criminal Procedure Code. “Even after the notice, if any organisation fails to stop their illegal parking, then we may file an FIR against them. They can also be questioned on why their organization or mall should not be shut down if they are failing to follow rules,” the city magistrate said.
Noida Authority was also asked by the DM to identify and make list of places where illegal parking is rampant. Around 25 notices will be issued to the owners or heads of organizations and malls.
