Speak up: Will BMC's new policy bring relief from parking woes? 24.4.2017 DNA: India
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has recently rolled out its new pay-and-park policy after the state government lifted the stay on it last month. The highlights of the new policy for city motorists include hourly charges, monthly pass (a day as well as night pass) and discounted rates at tourists spots among others.
