Patna: Patna Divisional Commissioner Anand Kishore on Tuesday held a meeting of top officials to discuss issues related with the ongoing maintenance of the sprawling Gandhi Maidan which, when finished, would offer a better look of the iconic green oasis in an otherwise concrete city while also providing a much better experience to the visitors in terms of safety and cleanliness.

With top administrative officials present in the meeting including District Magistrate (DM) Kumar Ravi and Patna Municipal Corporation (PMC) Deputy Commissioner Vishal Anand, Kishore issued a complete ban on the movement of automobiles, including any government vehicles, inside the maidan at any time.

Kishore told the reporters that a special parking lot would be developed near the maidan where people coming to attend various fairs would be able to park their vehicles

"A private company has been entrusted to keep an eye on vehicles trying to illegally enter the maidan in defiance of today's announcement," he said.

Another private company has been roped in to keep the Maidan clean at all time and if it fails to live up to the expectations, 25% of their fee would be deducted from their bill. This same firm is responsible for installing trash bins throughout the maidan so visitors could dump their trash in them instead of littering the entire field," said PMC Deputy Commissioners Vishal Anand.
