In a bid to curb the rapidly rising population of the vehicles in the National Capital, the state government of Delhi is planning to increase the parking rates considerably. In a recent high level meeting of the state government, a top government official stated that it is time to take some drastic steps to limit the number of vehicles as currently over 11 percent of the total area of the city is being used as the parking space.

While further elaborating the government’s plans, he added, "The government feels there is no other alternative but to make hefty increase in parking fee to restrict number of private vehicles. We cannot afford to increase the parking space as currently 11 per cent of the total area is being used for parking."

Delhi currently has highest vehicular population among the four major metro cities including Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata. As per an estimate, more than 1000 vehicles added to the city traffic every day.

In the month of Feburary’12, the Special Task Force appointed by the Delhi High Court had strongly recommended a significant hike in the parking charges.
