Kiran Dighavkar, the additional municipal commissioner, told CNN-News 18, “It is a large parking lot. There was demand for home vaccination since many people are not able to stand in a queue. They will now get jabbed in their own vehicles. They can also spend 30 minutes mandatory waiting period in their cars. Those who use the facility will only have to pay the relevant parking charges.”
