This questionnaire is meant for a study aimed at preparing a MODERN, organised infrastructure for parking vehicles (cars, two-wheelers, bicycles) and also providing excellent walking and cycling facilities in and around the neighbourhood of Alaknanda Market. This would be done to remove the chaos from the market and make it more walking friendly with an orderly manner of parked cars and two-wheelers.
