The goal is to discourage road-side parking in Delhi and reduce congestion.

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has asked the government of Delhi and the municipal corporations to discourage parking on the side of roads and to ensure there are enough parking facilities for Cars.

NGT Chairperson, Justice Swatanter Kumar, headed a bench that slammed the authorities for not complying with its earlier orders which were focussed on decongesting traffic. The panel stated that if New Cars are registered, then they must be given proper parking spaces as well.

“For instance, the multiple parking at Sarojni Nagar remains empty which is undisputed fact and all the vehicles are permitted to be parked on roads where some contractors collect money and add to congestion of traffic,” said the bench. “All the government authorities, corporations and New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) should take immediate and effective steps to rectify these discrepancies and ensure better co-ordination between the corporations, government, police, departments and contractors who are engaged for parking purposes.”

The NGT also instructed the AAP government and the traffic police to challan and seize 10-year-old diesel vehicles and 15-year-old petrol vehicles to tackle increasing pollution.
