Unprecedented and unjustified user fee hike for public swimming at LNCE SAI

In the last 7 years that many of us have been swimming at LNCPE, the registration and user fee for public swimming has increased 3 times. The fee hike made on Feb 2018 highly impacts the public. While the registration fees has increased 100%, the user fee has been hiked 150%.

While the quality of swimming facilities such as restrooms, changing rooms etc has only deteriorated in these years, without any improvement going into those areas, such a fee hike cannot be justified. On account of increased crowd in the swimming pool, the public timing has also been changed to from 7am to 6am in the morning, and 5pm to 6pm in the evening over these years. On most days, even though this timing is dedicated for public, we have to share 2-3 crowded lanes where as the majority of the lanes will still be occupied by students, or other members.

Compared to other disciplines like walking, that my wife has a membership of, which has seen a registration fee hike of 100% and user fee of 50%, swimming users are adversely affected by this notice. How does LNCPE-SAI expect public to take this?

LNCPE-SAI needs to reduce the user fee for swimming. If it is still needed to increase the fee hike, it should result in improvement of the overall facility, timing, and experience for the users. The public does not expect to be treated like this.
