One fine day, entire stretch of Baner Road, Pune of approximately 7 Kms has been put as no parking area. Before taking such a drastic decision, the citizens were not kept in loop or neither were there any alternate arrangement of parking area made. This sudden decision is putting lot of inconvenience on the citizens, especially children, senior citizens & females in particular. This stretch of area has a lot of Clinics, Diagnostic Centres, Daily necessary provision stores like DMart and various other important small business establishments. Think of the people who have to take their family members to a clinic or a diagnostic centre. Where will they park? In most cases the people visiting the clinic or diagnostic centres would be ill or would be in for some medical emergency. They can't waste time for non availability of parking space. There is a DMart in the area from where thousands of people buy daily provision items. In most cases, the customers buy in bulk. Most of the customers are ladies and senior citizens. How can the authorities expect the ladies to carry large items to be carried by the ladies and senior citizens? The above are just two examples of the issues faced by the citizens.

When the citizens raised this issue with the traffic department, the response received through their official twitter handle was that "The parking spaces sanctioned as per norms which are meant for customers are misused by the establishments on Baner road. The establishments should vacate these spaces for their customers to park vehicles".

The real issue here is that if the shopkeepers are utilising the footpath and other ares illegally, the authorities are supposed to act. Here, the inefficiency of the authorities in enforcing law is being taken out on the poor public.

Putting Entire Baner Road as no parking area is not only putting the citizen to inconvenience, it is also impacting the revenue collection of the Government.

Now, the traffic polices have started charging fines from the vehicles even if there is a driver sitting in their vehicles.

Whenever some rules are made or changed by any authorities, the purpose must for making the citizen's life easier. In this case rather than making the citizen's life easier, it is making their life miserable. Considering the above, We, the citizens request that the important areas within Baner Road is reverted back to Parking Area with immediate effect.
