The state government has given the Directorate of Urban Land Transport (DULT) the green signal for a new parking policy in the city.

Story so far: The DULT submitted a proposal to the state government for a revised parking policy in order to streamline traffic. The BBMP Chief Commissioner stated that the civic body would fix parking fares and then call for tenders.

  • The fee proposed by DULT ranges from ₹25 to ₹75 depending on the location, bringing more roads in the Central Business District under the system.
  • The new policy will also bring discipline among vehicle owners, encourage the use of public transport and cut down on air pollution.

Objective: The new policy aims to organise parking while facilitating a move from a government-driven parking supply to a market-driven parking supply. Earlier, the BBMP planned to implement this system on 85 roads, but with the new policy, they will now identify more roads to bring under the system.
