Government of India scraps car parking charges till 21st of November across all the airports in the subcontinent. The choice was taken by the Airports Authority of India in the wake of sudden withdrawal of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes. This step will help people who are already facing problems due to the currency crunch.
The Ministry of Civil Aviation has chosen to suspend the gathering of parking charges at all air terminals and air strips till the midnight of November 21st. According to the ministry, this step has been taken to facilitate smooth passenger movement.
The AAI deals with every one of the air terminals in the nation except for Delhi and Mumbai air terminals which have been made in PPP( public private partnership) model. AAI has said in a statement that Indian citizens are confronting cash hardship because of the demonetization of money (Rs1,000 and 500 notes) across the nation. Thus, Airports Authority of India (AAI) has chosen to bolster this battle of the Government of India and extend possible help to air travelers and airport users.
As per an AAI official, the organisation has acted according to the government guidelines and has decided not to charge any car parking fee for seven days starting from the midnight of 14th November. He likewise included, insights with respect to financial compensation for private companies running parking zones at airport terminals would be decided later.
