Mumbai: Free Parking to End, Govt Lifts Stay on BMC Policy

As per reports, free parking on road and footpath may not be allowed in Mumbai from March onwards as the stay on a policy by the BMC, which was prepared two years ago, has been lifted by the state government. However, there are designated tourist spots as well as public places which will be spared from this decision.

As per the residential scheme of the policy, cars will be allowed to be parked from 8 pm to 8 am and the monthly charges will vary from Rs Rs 660 to 1,980 depending on the category. The rates on Sundays and public holidays will reportedly be different.

Sasikala's swearing-in as Tamil Nadu CM: SC Rejects Hearing of Plea

An urgent hearing of a PIL trying to stall party general secretary VK Sasikala from taking oath as Tamil Nadu Chief Minister has been refused by the Supreme Court on Friday. The hearing has been declined by the Apex court till the decision on Sasikala's disproportionate assets case comes.

The top court will be delivering its judgment within a week on the appeals against acquittal of late chief minister J Jayalalithaa in a corruption case, in which Sasikala is also a co-accused. This might not be a very good news for Sasikala if she is found guilty.
