Congestion and parking woes
  • Cars across the country are increasing by leaps and bounds and are choking roads.
  • According to Delhi's Economic Survey, in 2012-13 Economic Survey, Delhi had 7.4 million cars; this was more than total number of cars in Mumbai, Chennai and Calcutta.
  • Reportedly, nearly 1200 new cars hit the streets every day and brawls and fights over parking issues are a common occurrence in Delhi.

  • Union government is working on a proposal that would impact everyone planning to buy a car.
  • The government announced yesterday, that buyers of new cars or bikes will now have to render proof of adequate parking space and undergo an inspection of parking spaces.
  • If implemented, it is possible that this rule would have a significant impact on car and bike sales.

  • A parking 'rider'
  • In order to mitigate congestion Urban Development Minister, M Venkaiah Naidu, said it could soon be mandatory to provide a 'parking space certificate' otherwise registration of vehicles won't be allowed.
  • If enforced, a physical verification will be carried out by the transport department and issued by the nearest police station.
  • Discussions are currently ongoing with Transport Ministry led by Nitin Gadkari.

  • Urban Minister, Venkaiah Naidu's statement
    "In future, no car or vehicle will be registered without an adequate parking space available certificate. I am very keen on this. I am holding discussion with the surface transport minister and also sensitizing the states. We would be moving in that direction."

    HP and Sikkim lead the way
  • A car parking space as a pre-requisite to registering new cars has been inspired from Tokyo.
  • To deal with menace of congestion, several Indian states have already implemented this.
  • Sikkim was the first to implement this; Himachal Pradesh made a parking-space certificate mandatory last year.
  • This month, it was implemented in districts of Agra, Mathura and from next year will be implemented across UP.

  • Execution could be challenging
    Government officials warned that cities like Delhi, one-third populace lived in unauthorized colonies and rest of Delhi does not have planned development. Among all states, as on March 2015, Delhi has the highest number of cars - 26 lakhs.
