Ten parking meters, four feet tall, have been installed on this stretch and they are solar powered.
One was demonstrated a fortnight ago to the BMP Commissioner, M.R. Srinivasa Murthy. All were to be functional from November 1.
According to Suhail Yusuf, Secretary of Brigade's Shops and Establishments Association (BSEA), which has spent Rs. 50 lakh on the meters, a technical snag has developed and this has to be rectified before the meters can be used.
"We hope to have the meters ready for use by November 7 or 8 positively," he said.
While the BSEA will maintain the parking meters, the revenue is to be shared with the Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP).
The BMP and the city traffic police will be involved in their maintenance and enforcement of the related rules like the two-hour maximum parking allowed on any single slot.
The police will tow away cars without the parking fee receipt on their windshields.
