Various other issues such as parking fees, conditions of parking contracts, overnight parking of transport vehicles and proof of parking, parking at railway station, airports and Delhi Metro stations, among others were also discussed in the meeting. “Convened first meeting of Apex Monitoring Committee of Delhi Parking Rules with Traffic Police, MCDs, DDA & other stakeholders, with a special emphasis on reservation for EVs," Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot tweeted after the meeting.

Gahlot also urged people to actively participate in addressing parking issues in the state and shift to public transport. The national capital had notified its ‘Delhi Maintenance and Management of Parking Places Rules' in September 2019. Under its guidelines, civic agencies will be responsible for making required arrangement of parking space in their respective jurisdictions.

The area-wise parking plans for the state will be notified and published on the websites of respective civic agencies after they obtain the approval of apex monitoring committee.
