Addressing the parking Conundrum

The Delhi government has published a draft parking policy which, once notified and implemented, can have far-reaching impacts on the state of pollution and congestion in Delhi. Through EPCA, CSE has been advocating to get the parking policy notified – the matter is now under review in the Supreme Court. Earlier, CSE had supported the framing of the policy – it was a part of the Committee constituted to draft the parking rules. We also headed a sub-committee on framing guidelines for parking management district.   CSE has also prepared the parking rules for the Punjab government, which has notified them. The notified rules incorporate, inter alia, the requirement of drawing up parking area management plans in cities, a key policy measure that CSE has been stressing on for parking management in cities
