: Chennai Corporation will soon install parking meters at nine more locations. This was decided at an all-party meeting held on Wednesday by the civic body.

Regulation of parking and the possibility of commissioning underground multi-level parking lots in open space reserve lands were also discussed. The locations chosen for the metered on-street parking include stretches of Anna Nagar Third Avenue; Anna Nagar Second Avenue; Purasawalkam High Road; General Patters Road; Sardar Patel Road in Gandhi Nagar; Whites Road in Royapettah; and Shanthi Colony near Sundaram Medical Foundation. At present, North Mada Street, Mylapore; Pondy Bazaar in T.Nagar, and CSIR Road in Taramani have the facilities. A car user can drop a 5-rupee coin into the meter and obtain a permit on which the entry time and vehicle number will be printed.

The parking attendant would verify the permit to be displayed on the dashboard. Parking fee for two hours is Rs.10 and for 3 hours Rs.15.
