The mismanagement of the concerned authorities of the Government Medical College and Hospital (GMC&H), Jammu, could be well assessed from the fact that on any given day, the vehicles inside the hospital premises could be seen parked in the "No Parking Zone".
Despite erection of the sign boards mentioning "No Parking Zone", the people park their vehicles in these areas due to lack of deterrent in place. This practice is not only creating nuisance in the already congested areas of the hospital but is also adding to the people's problems.
"The parking area inside the hospital premises is full. Where should I park my vehicle?", said an attendant who had come to meet his relative admitted din the hospital.
Moreover, the security personnel posted at the entry gate of the hospital are also least bothered to manage the affairs. The haphazard parking of vehicles has become a major reason for traffic mess and congestion inside the hospital premises.
A senior doctor posted at GMC&H said that parking and no-parking zones have been marked in the hospital but as the rush of the patients is very high during winters, the parking space has reduced, owing to which the attendants park their vehicles in no-parking zones.
He however, said that the practice must be checked as it causes problems for others.
He said that GMC&H has tendered the work of under-ground parking project and with the commissioning of this project; the problem will be solved to a large extent.
