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.

In a move that could be perceived as reneging on its election manifesto, two BJP-ruled civic agencies may increase parking charges in the city.

In the manifesto, the party had promised that it would not impose additional taxes on residents, but the corporations may increase parking charges in their budget. North Municipal Corporation Leader of House Mahendra Nagpal said representatives of three corporations will meet to decide on the hike. “We will keep parking rates uniform across the city. It has been duly decided to keep the rates uniform in corporations,” Mahendra Nagpal said.

Reneging on the promise made in its election manifesto — that it would not it would not impose additional burden on the city residents by hiking taxes — the BJP has cleared the budget of the South municipal corporation, which has proposed a steep hike in parking rates in South Delhi. Earlier, the parking fee was Rs 10 for 10 hours for cars, which has now been hiked to Rs 20 for the first three hours and Rs 10 for each subsequent hour for A and B category of four-wheel vehicles. For two-wheelers, the rate will be Rs 10 for the first three hours and

Parking rates in areas under the jurisdiction of South Delhi Municipal Corporation will double with the civic body today clearing a budget proposal for this.

The civic body adopted the proposal for increase in parking rates suggested by SDMC Commissioner Manish Gupta with some modifications. According to the decision, Rs 20 will be charged for the first three hours and Rs 10 for every subsequent hour for four-wheelers and Rs 10 for first three hours and Rs 5 for every subsequent hour for two-wheelers.

MARGAO: Violations of parking norms with impunity figured prominently at the meeting of the South Goa Planning and Development Authority (SGPDA) on Tuesday, with members unanimously underlining the need for strict enforcement of parking rules.

The meeting rejected a couple of building project files for want of adequate parking. The builders will be asked to come out with a revised plan taking into account parking requirements. The meeting saw members calling for stringent implementation of parking rules in the commercial capital to create adequate space for parking. This follows the irregularities detected by a PDA team which inspected some of the building projects in the pipeline in Fatorda.
