For the past nine months, visiting the UT Estate Office or the deputy commissioner's (DC) office in Sector 17 has become a herculean task for public.
The reason could be attributed to the inability of the Municipal Corporation to auction the two parking lots around these offices. Now, the public is left to fend for themselves when it comes to finding a parking space around the offices.
In the absence of anybody manning the parking lots, visitors can be seen arguing with each other over parking spaces. This is despite the fact that there are two underground parking lots outside the DC office building. While the one which has a capacity of about 60 cars, is being used to store documents pertaining to the Election Department, the other that was once used to park two wheelers is being utilised as a store house with huge generator sets lying there.
Consequently, two wheelers are parked in the corridor leading to the DC office from the office of SDO (Buildings), making it difficult for pedestrians to use the corridor.
Deputy Commissioner Mohammad Shayin said, "We are aware of the situation and we have already written to the Municipal Corporation authorities in connection with the auctioning of parking lots".
Sulakshna Verma, a resident of Sector 23, who went to the UT Estate Office regarding her property case said, "I reached the office around 10.30 am on Tuesday, but kept driving through the two parking lots for 45 minutes to find a place to park my car. But in vain, as all the cars were parked in a haphazard manner. Finally, I parked my car in the Sector-17 plaza, walked almost half a kilometre to get to the office. Why can't the authorities do some thing about the parking space when they are aware that a large number of people visit the offices everyday? The people concerned must make alternate arrangements for public".
