Demonetisation: Airport Authority extends parking fee waiver till Novemer 29
In the wake of demonetisation crisis, the Airport Authority of India (AAI) reportedly extended the airport parking fee waiver for one week till November 28, midnight.
The AAI had earlier allowed free parking at the airport till November 21 after the government decided to scrap Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes.
The authorities earlier said the directive is applicable for both public and privately operated airports. In India, there are 75 functional airports including six run under joint ventures.
Officials also said financial compensation for private companies running parking areas will be discussed later.
Meanwhile, the opposition leaders announced to take their protests to the national level on November 28, calling out for demonstrations and marches.
Left leader Sitaram Yechury in a press conference said : “We will march separately and strike together.”
Congress plans to organise protests in districts and state capitals on November 28 against the failure of the government in giving people access to their cash. They are planning to hold protests in front of banks also.
In both the Houses of Parliament, the opposition was united in attacking the government, disrupting the proceedings demanding Prime Minister explain the scrapping of currency in Rajya Sabha. They have demanded for a vote at the end of a debate on the issue.
