The divisional commissioner directed commissioner SMC and other concerned officials to take stringent steps so that the all the components of this Plan as conceived by the traffic adviser are properly implemented. He said that the introduction of paid roadside parking, signages, markings of the road and other decisions have eased the traffic woes to a large extent.
