Neighbourhood News Desk: Residents in South Delhi’s Lajpat Nagar and Kailash Colony will soon be allotted parking spaces and issued permit stickers for their designated spots as part of a pilot project to decongest the Capital that will soon extend to other localities, officials of the South Delhi Municipal Corporation said on Monday.
The project is a part of Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal’s Parking Management Area Plan (PMAP), which was launched early this year to decongest residential colonies across the city. Delhi’s vehicular traffic is rising at an alarming rate, with about 3.6 million private cars running on the Capital’s streets last year. The officials said that non-residents visiting the areas will have to park their vehicles at paid lots. The SDMA has begun a process to issue tenders for the construction of 25 paid stack parking lots near residential colonies and markets.
