Parking in Delhi set to get tougher, dearer; higher tax for multiple car owners
The policy suggests giving parking space on colony streets based on the size of the plot.
“Beyond a specific number, depending on plot size, there should be additional charges for parking on residential streets for equitable distribution of public spaces,” the policy says.
To discourage people from buying multiple cars, it says road tax would be increased on an incremental basis for those who buy more than one car. Besides, those who have more than 2 cars will have to pay a higher parking fee.
Around commercial areas such as markets, it suggests levying three times higher the charge for on-street parking.
The policy also reverses the existing trend where multi-level parking (MLP) lots are costlier than surface parking.
