MV Act to be amended: No car if no parking space

Parking rider for new car

Our Special Correspondent

New Delhi, Dec. 22: The government is considering making it mandatory for car buyers to provide a certificate saying they have parking space before they are allowed to register their new cars.

This means that if a buyer does not have space to park his car, he will not be allowed to register it.

Several Indian states have already enforced such a rule, inspired by Tokyo. The certificate is usually issued by the police station nearest to the buyer's home, and the transport department conducts a physical verification.

If the government wants to extend the rule across India, it will have to be incorporated into the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Bill, 2016, introduced in the Lok Sabha in August but not yet passed.

"In future, no car or vehicle will be registered without an adequate-parking-space-available certificate," urban development minister Venkaiah Naidu said at a news conference today.

He said the objective was to decongest the roads and that his ministry was talking to the surface transport ministry of Nitin Gadkari on the subject.

Last year, Himachal Pradesh High Court had directed the state government not to allow any new vehicle to be registered for use in Shimla without a certificate about the availability of parking space. The certificate was to be acquired from the Shimla collector.

Sikkim had adopted this rule in 2010. This month, the regional transport office in Mathura enforced it in the districts of Agra, Mathura and Firozabad. The whole of Uttar Pradesh is expected to follow suit next year.

"I am also sensitising the states. We are moving in that direction," Naidu said today.

In Delhi, the lack of parking space has led to bloody brawls on the streets. According to the 2012-13 Economic Survey of Delhi, the city has 7.4 million cars -- more than Mumbai, Chennai and Calcutta put together - and 1,200 more are added to the fleet every day.

But Delhi is yet to link car registration to the availability of parking space.

Naidu also spoke on Swachh Bharat, saying no construction would be allowed in the country without toilets.

He today launched the Google Toilet Locator, a mobile app that will help users locate public toilets in the National Capital Region as well as in Indore and Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh.

Currently, the app offers the locations of over 6,200 toilets, including many in shopping malls, hospitals, bus and train stations, petrol pumps and Metro stations. Of these, 5,100 are in the National Capital Region, Naidu said.

No car if no parking space - Centre plans to introduce new norms

No car if no parking space - Centre plans to introduce new norms

New Delhi: In a move aimed at freeing public space and reducing pollution, the Centre is mulling to bring a new rule which will restrict people from buying and registering new cars if they can't furnish proof of having adequate parking space for their vehicles.

The road transport department has welcomed such a move, according to a Times of India report.

"I am very keen on this. I am talking to the surface transport minister and also sensitising the states. We would be moving in that direction," Union Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu was quoted as saying on Thursday.

'If such a proposal comes from the Urban Development Ministry, it would be considered, a road transport ministry official said. 

"Space crunch for parking and congestion in cities are big concerns. We're serious about de-congestion of roads," he added.

Though transport experts have welcomed the intention, but they are sceptical about its effective implementation. 

Citing reasons for this, they claim that the registration of vehicles is done by state transport departments, but the parking issue is dealt with by the municipal bodies.

Moreover, barring people to buy new vehicles should ideally be preceded with making efficient public transport available, they add.

Experts also want the government to take other steps such as hiking parking charges, levying charges for using private vehicles in congested areas and increasing interest rate for car loans to discourage people from buying vehicles.

Several reports on de-congesting cities and towns have in past suggested similar measure of linking availability of parking space to registration of private vehicles.

பார்க்கிங் செய்ய இடம் இல்லைன்னா கார் பதிவு கிடையாது.. மத்திய அரசின் அடுத்த அதிரடி 

By: Veera Kumar

டெல்லி: பார்க்கிங்கிற்கு இடம் இல்லாதவர்களுக்கு கார் பதிவு கிடையாது என்ற புது விதிமுறையை மத்திய அரசு கொண்டுவர உள்ளது. 

ஈ.எம்.ஐ மூலமான கார் விற்பனை, இந்தியர்களின் சராசரி வருமான உயர்வு போன்றவற்றால் கார் விற்பனை அதிகரித்துள்ளது. குறிப்பாக நகரங்களில் கார் வைத்திருப்பது கவுரவம் சார்ந்த விஷயமாகிவிட்டது. 

இதனால் சென்னை, கோவை, பெங்களூர் என எந்த ஒரு நகராக இருந்தாலும் கார் இல்லாத மத்தியத்தர, உயர்தட்டு வீடுகளை பார்க்க முடியாத சூழல். 

சாலைகளில் நெருக்கடி 

அதேநேரம், காருக்கான பார்க்கிங் வசதியை பெரும்பாலானோர் செய்வதில்லை. வீட்டுக்கு வெளியே சாலையை அடைத்தபடி, தெருவை ஆக்கிரமித்தபடி காரை நிறுத்துவது வழக்கமாக உள்ளது. இதனால் அந்த வழியாக போகும் பிற வாகனங்கள் செல்ல முடியாமல் தடுமாறுவது வாடிக்கையாகிவிட்டது. 

புது விதிமுறை 

இந்த நெருக்கடியை முடிவுக்கு கொண்டுவர மத்திய அரசு திட்டம் வைத்துள்ளது. இனிமேல் கார் வாங்குவோர் பார்க்கிங் இடம் உள்ளதற்கான ஆவணத்தை காண்பிக்காவிட்டால் அந்த காரை ரிஜிஸ்டர் செய்ய முடியாதபடி விதிமுறையை மாற்ற உள்ளதாம் மத்திய அரசு. 

வெங்கையா நாயுடு 

நகர்ப்புற வளர்ச்சி அமைச்சர் வெங்கையா நாயுடு பேட்டியொன்றில் இதை உறுதி செய்துள்ளார். பார்க்கிங்கிற்கு இடம் உள்ளது என்பதற்கான ஆதாரத்தை காட்டாவிட்டால் காரை பதிவு செய்ய முடியாது. எனவே ஒவ்வொருவரும் முதலில் பார்க்கிங்கிற்கு இடத்தை பார்த்துவிட்டுதான் கார் வாங்க கிளம்ப முடியும். 

பொதுப் போக்குவரத்து 

நகர்ப்புறங்களில் சாலை நெருக்கடியை குறைக்க வாடகை கார்களை ஷேர் செய்யும், பூலிங் சிஸ்டம் ஊக்குவிக்கப்படும் என்றும் நாயுடு தெரிவித்துள்ளார். பொதுப் போக்குவரத்தை வசதியானதாக மாற்றுவதன் மூலம் கார்கள் எண்ணிக்கையை அதிகரிக்கவிடாமல் கட்டுப்படுத்துவது நோக்கமாகும்.

English summary: Want to buy a car? Find parking first or else your new vehicle may not be registered. The centre is planning to introduce a much needed rule which would make it mandatory to produce proof that you have parking space. The centre says that if proof of parking space is not produced then the vehicle will not be registered.
