    The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has asked the Delhi government and the municipal corporations to discourage road-side parking in the capital city and ensure availability of appropriate parking facilities for cars.

    A bench headed by NGT Chairperson, Justice Swatanter Kumar, slammed the authorities for not complying with its earlier orders to decongest traffic and asked them to take steps in a holistic manner.

    The green panel said that if new cars are being allowed to registered, then they must be given proper parking spaces.

    “For instance, the multiple parking at Sarojni Nagar remains empty which is undisputed fact and all the vehicles are permitted to be parked on roads where some contractors collect money and add to congestion of traffic,” said the bench. “All the government authorities, corporations and New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) should take immediate and effective steps to rectify these discrepancies and ensure better co-ordination between the corporations, government, police, departments and contractors who are engaged for parking purposes.”

    It also directed the AAP government and the traffic police to challan and seize 10-year-old diesel vehicles and 15-year-old petrol vehicles to curb air pollution in the city.
