Mormugao Municipal Council is likely to implement pay parking system at various locations in Vasco. The civic body will first begin pay parking on streets around the municipal square in Vasco. MMC hopes that it will ease pressure on parking in congested areas of the town and at the same time earn some revenue. Transport Minister Mauvin Godhino and Vasco MLA Carlos Almeida are in favour of the move.

MMC Chairperson Nandadeep Raut said he had received several complaints from people that most taxis, rent-a-car, and rent-a-bike vehicles were monopolising the parking space. He said this will help to create space for other vehicles. While Transport Minister Mauvin Godinho said he won't allow rent-a-bike and rent-a-car operators  to park their vehicles on the roads,  Vasco MLA Carlos Almeida said pay parking was much needed if the parking issue in Vasco had to be  resolved.
