In addition, BECIL will also set up and run a dedicated call centre for the residents as a customer care unit to to help with their queries and issues related to the use of the app. The call centre will look into complaints and grievances.

BECIL will charge a percentage of parking charges only to people using BECIL's app and web/tech platforms to make payment of the parking charges. The app will be available to download for free on Android and iOS platforms.
