Residents of north Delhi will finally get an IT-based parking system in their area which is expected to protect them from overcharging and harassment by the parking mafia.
The North Delhi Municipal Corporation has completed the tender procedure of 62 surface parking lots that will become operational in the next two weeks.
Following a new parking policy, it will become mandatory for parking attendants to give parking slips using hand-held devices.
The ticket will clearly mention the duration for which the vehicle is parked and the payable parking charge --- meaning lesser harassment for the motorists.
Moreover, all parking lots would have CCTV cameras which will ensure better monitoring besides keeping a check on illegal parking by the attendants.
"The tendering process has been completed. The parking lots with all the new features in place are likely to become operational in a fortnight," said a senior official.
Violation of the clauses would invite monetary punishment and cancellation of licence after five violations.
