Parking charges to be levied according to the residential parking rules in delhi, notifies L-G of Delhi
After a number of new policies and reforms implemented countrywide in last couple of years, the Delhi government has come up with new residential parking rules in Delhi. On Jan 29, 2018, the Lt Governor of Delhi disclosed a new parking policy, under which, the parking of vehicles will be charged on designated streets and lanes in the residential areas.
However, the Lt Governor Anil Bajaj also cleared that the policy known as “Delhi maintenance and management of parking rules 2017”, will be open for suggestions for one month. The final rules will be notified by the transport department of Delhi. An apex monitoring committee, headed by the chief secretary of the Delhi government will be formed, for implementation of the rules.
The local area parking plans for the residential areas will be charted out by civil agencies, MCDs and the DDA, within four months of notification of the rule. In consultation with RAWs (residents welfare associations), the civil agencies will decide the fees for parking on designated streets and lanes in residential areas.
Through a base parking fee panel, the apex committee will determine the parking charges according to a base parking fee. The space will be identified and provided by the civic agencies for the night parking of commercial vehicles, for which charges will be levied. According to the rules set by the bureau of Indian standards, national building code of India and others, the differently-abled people will be given special provisions under residential parking rules in delhi.
The parking facility for e-rickshaws and other electrical vehicles will also be planned accordingly. The policy is aimed at prohibiting the parking on footpaths and main roads.The traffic police and civic agencies will be given the authority to tow away the vehicles and charge from Rs 200 to Rs 2000, according to the new notification.
