Pay more night parking charges in Delhi
Get ready to pay more night parking charges in Delhi
New Delhi,27 November: To reduce congestion in the capital and construct more parking facilities the North Delhi municipal corporation has revised the one time (night) parking charges for private and commercial four wheelers to be parked under its zone. Now, private vehicles will have to pay Rs 8,000 as a one time parking fee as opposed to the earlier Rs 2,000 for cars costing up to Rs 4 lakh. For vehicles costing upwards of Rs 4 lakh, the prices will augment by several lakhs. The move comes after the Supreme court ordered city authorities to impose an environmental tax on commercial vehicles entering the capital to reduce pollution.
Four wheelers costing more than Rs 4 lakh will have to pay 4 percent parking fee which goes up to 6-15 percent for more expensive vehicles, as per the current proposal. Earlier the MCD North deliberated to levy these charges on auto rickshaws, e-rickshaws and taxis, but soon scrapped the decision. However, under the directions of Delhi government e-rickshaws have also been notified as commercial vehicles and should come under the purview of registration. The parking charges are being levied as all vehicles are to be parked on the municipal corporation land. Further, people can always buy cars from areas outside the NCT of Delhi, as state cannot stop its entry or exit.
