Delhi RWAs oppose fee on parking outside homes
The Residents’ Welfare Associations in Delhi have opposed the new parking policy that, once notified, would require them to pay for parking outside their homes. Residents argue that basic infrastructure must be put in place before a fee is imposed.
LG Anil Baijal on Wednesday reviewed the Delhi Maintenance and Management of Parking Rules, 2017, prepared by the transport department, and asked civic bodies to prepare an action plan within four months of the rules being notified.
According to the draft policy, parking in residential colonies will be allowed in demarcated areas and open surfaces, and civic agencies will have to determine the base parking fee in consultation with RWAs. The three municipal corporations and the New Delhi Municipal Council will be responsible for implementing the rule.
