Civic Agency Will Table Proposal At January 31 Meeting

New Delhi: The New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) is all set to increase surface level parking rates in areas under its jurisdiction. The civic agency is planning to implement the rates that were discussed in a special meeting chaired by Delhi government chief secretary in October last year. A proposal is likely to be tabled in the council’s meeting on January 31.

New Delhi: Soon, Delhiites will have to pay more for parking in public places. The BJPled municipal corporations plan to double the parking rates — from Rs 10 for the entire day to Rs 20 for three hours. The move comes despite BJP promising in its 2012 municipal election manifesto that it will not increase taxes.

Sources said the party is compelled to do so as all the three corporations are facing a financial crunch. Senior BJP councilors of the three corporations will soon hold a meeting with Delhi BJP chief Vijender Gupta to finalize the rates, they added.
