Now Delhiites have to get a permit to park car outside their houses

As per the draft notification of the Delhi Maintenance and Management of Parking Rules, 2017 that was published last month after the approval of the Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal. Delhiites soon have to apply and pay for a permit to park car outside their houses and in case a household has two cars then they have to buy parking rights in an auction.

The aim of the guidelines is to bring discipline in parking, particularly in residential areas. If the guidelines are followed, residents will know their exact parking slots, and there will be no haphazard parking in residential neighborhoods, a senior transport department official said. The guidelines are not final and have not been prepared by the department, but by an expert committee. These will now be discussed in meetings with all stakeholders, and finer points will be finalized, he said.

The guidelines are proposed to be implemented in two phases. In the first phase, the residential parking permits will be issued on the basis of the legal parking sites that are identified and demarcated by the civic agencies and in the second phase, pricing of residential permits may be introduced, and residents will have to apply for these.

Ideally, one parking slot will be allotted to each household, but if there are more cars than one in a household, extra parking space can be allotted, either through auction or a lottery, the official said. Those who are unable to get a permit will be put on a waiting list. In such a case, the price of permits will go up after a period of six months or a year.

The guidelines also suggest that any area or spot that is not notified and physically demarcated as a parking site will automatically be considered as a no-parking zone and relevant penalties will be applicable. Free parking will be allowed only for cycles, cycle rickshaws, e-rickshaws and public transport vehicles.
