Uttarakhand to set up 22 parking spaces inside tunnels to overcome parking problem in hilly neighborhoods



Dehradun: The cabinet of Uttarakhand decided to set up car parks inside the tunnels to alleviate the problem of parking in the hilly districts of the state. 22 car parks of this type will be built in the first phase.
At a Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami on Wednesday, 28 major decisions were taken. In another major move, permission to provide grants to non-pre-registered beneficiary MSMEs has been exempted.
Under the 2015 MSME policy, it was necessary to be pre-registered to obtain a grant, but due to a lack of information, around 100 beneficiaries linked to it were deprived of the grant.
The Cabinet has given approval to the company which is preparing the Kedarnath reconstruction master plan to also prepare a master plan for Sonprayag. Approval to increase consultancy fees from 3 to 4% as part of the new master plan at Kedarnath Badrinath has been given.
The Dhami-led government has approved the exemption for height increase in the construction of the terminal at Dehradun-Mussoorie Ropeway.
In addition, permission in principle has been granted to high-rise commercial buildings located near metro stations. This should help people reach subway stations from one place. (ANI)
