NCR too is facing acute space shortage. Why isn't a policy being framed for them?We have been talking to the NCR planning board and soon a number of spaces will be identified to be converted into legal parking lots.
The parking mafia has been over-charging motorists. They have also encroached upon prime land in the city. Why has no action been taken against them?We have been writing to the civic bodies to take action against errant parking contractors. We had told them to introduce hand-held devices to ensure parking slips are not tampered with. The devices have been introduced in some areas. But we want them for the entire city.
What do you think can be the solution to this parking mess?Improving public transport is the only answer. Use of private vehicles needs to be discouraged; we need to increase the surface parking charges too. At the same time, we must encourage people to use the multi-level parkings. But till then, we need to ensure that illegal parking lots are converted into legal ones, so that motorists are not fleeced.
