Puzzle Parking Part of Common Areas in Housing Project
Puzzle parking is an automated system featuring combination pallets that enable horizontal and vertical movement of parking spots, just like a puzzle, to park and retrieve vehicles. Maharashtra Real Estate Regulatory Authority (MahaRera) has declared that puzzle parking is part of the common areas in a housing project. The order was passed on a complaint by Devarajan Swaminathan, a resident of Lodha Casa Royale at Balkum, Thane (West). The project comprises three towers of 432 flats with basement, stilt, open and puzzle parking.
MahaRera noted that definition of common areas means “the common basement, terrace, parks, play areas, open parking areas and common storage spaces. A specific car parking (in a puzzle park setup) to the exclusion of others cannot be allotted to any one allottee and is not possible also. A car can be parked at any level and at any available space.
