Advisory on introduction of congestion charging in central business areas/congested areas in Indian cities

It is well-known fact now that no-a-days mobility in our cities either big or medium, is a huge challenge due to congestion during peak hours which is mainly due to excessive use of private vehicles. There is a need to resolve the congestion issues urgently for improving mobility of the people. The problem of congestion may be partly resolved by adopting Transport Demand Management (TDM) strategies to ensure that the economic development of our cities is decoupled from excessive motorization by encouraging investments in sustainable transports like public transport, cycling and walking and encourage TDM policies like parking policy and Transit Oriented Development.
