‘Vehicles in the parking area to pay charges’
There will be no parking charges for vehicles for drop & go in the departure area at the Srinagar International Airport, its Director said on Monday.
The development, as per the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), followed after a person tagged the Director of Srinagar International Airport Kuldeep Singh Rishi on Twitter, asking him why people have to pay for parking charges if one is just dropping off passengers or picking them up without using the parking space.
“Can you also tell us why we have to pay parking charges if one is just dropping off passengers or picking them up without using the parking space ?” the person asked in a tweet.
Responding to the tweet, the Director said there will be no parking charges for drop & go in the departure area; however, the vehicles parked in the parking area will have to pay the charges.
“No parking charges for Drop & Go in Departure area Parking fees for parking the vehicles in the parking area Please do not leave your vehicle in No Parking area to avoid congestion Please contact Terminal Manager in case of overcharging/ wrong charging Mob 9419016404,” Rishi posted on his Twitter handle.
In an appeal, the Director said people should always park their vehicles in the parking area only for the convenience of other users at the airport.
Similarly, last Sunday, a Twitter user asked for the paint of the speed breakers for their clear visibility to avoid any inconvenience to which the Director airport posted pictures of painted speed breakers and wrote, “You say it We obey it.”—(KNO)
