'गाड़ी खरीदने और पार्किंग पर पॉलिसी बनाए सरकार'


राहुल मानव, नई दिल्ली 

दिल्ली में आए दिन पार्किंग को लेकर बड़े हादसे हो रहे हैं। रविवार को पटेल नगर में पार्किंग को लेकर हुए विवाद में एक बुजुर्ग को अपनी जान गंवानी पड़ी। छोटी कॉलोनी हो या बड़ी कॉलोनी, हर जगह आए दिन गाड़ी खड़ी करने को लेकर लोगों के बीच झगड़े हो रहे हैं। लोगों का कहना है कि एक घर में एक से ज्यादा गाड़ियां होने से इस तरह की समस्याएं बढ़ रही हैं। पार्किंग को लेकर बढ़ते हादसों पर आरडब्ल्यूए मेंबर्स ने कहा है कि गाड़ियों के खरीदने पर सरकार को पॉलिसी बनाने की जरुरत है जिससे पार्किंग विवाद को रोका जा सके। 

साउथ एक्स पार्ट-1 के आरडब्ल्यूए मेंबर मंजीत सिंह चुग कहते हैं कि दिल्ली म्यूनिसिपल कॉरपोरेशन एक्ट और ट्रैफिक पुलिस एक्ट लागू होने के बाद भी कोई कार्रवाई नहीं हो रही है। साउथ एक्स, मयूर विहार, डिफेंस कॉलोनी, राजौरी गार्डन, पटेल नगर जैसे कई इलाके हैं जहां पार्किंग स्पेस की कमी है। कई इलाके ऐसे हैं जहां गाड़ियों की पार्किंग के कारण पैदल चल रहे लोगों को भी दिक्कतों का सामना करना पड़ता है। साउथ एक्स में ऐसी परेशानी लोगों को हो रही है। मुझे लगता है कि कार लोन पर रोक लगा देनी चाहिए। लोगों को तभी गाड़ियां खरीदने की इजाजत मिले, जब उनके पास गाड़ी पार्क करने की जगह हो। 

ईस्ट दिल्ली आरडब्ल्यूए जॉइंट फ्रंट के प्रेजिडेंट बी. एस. वोहरा कहते हैं कि सरकार को गाड़ियों के खरीदने पर पॉलिसी बनाने की जरुरत है। सरकार सिर्फ गाड़ियों के रेवन्यू और टैक्स पर ही ध्यान दे रही है। कई लोग ऐसे हैं जिनके पास पार्किंग स्पेस एक गाड़ी की है, लेकिन उन्होंने दो-तीन गाड़ियां ले रखी हैं। जो भी गाड़ी खरीदने जा रहा है, उससे ये जरूर पूछा जाए कि पहले से उसके पास कितनी गाड़ियां हैं। दिल्ली में रोज एक हजार से ज्यादा गाड़ियां रजिस्टर हो रही हैं। 

मुझे लगता है कि पार्किंग के मुद्दे पर राजधानी में सख्त कानून बनाने की जरुरत है। सरकार को उन अवैध कब्जों पर ध्यान देने की भी जरुरत है, जहां लोग अवैध तरीके से गाड़ियां खड़ी कर रहे हैं। लोग रास्तों पर कार की पार्किंग कर रहे हैं, इसे रोकने की आवश्यकता है। - प्रशांत 

लोगों के पास पार्किंग स्पेस नहीं है, फिर भी लोग गाड़ियां खरीद रहे हैं। दिल्ली में कई ऐसी कॉलोनियां हैं, जहां कई साल पुरानी गाड़ियां खड़ी रहती हैं। ये पार्किंग स्पेस भी घेर रही हैं। इन गाड़ियों को डिस्पोज करने की जरुरत है जिससे गाड़ियां खड़ी करने के लिए स्पेस बनाया जा सके। - प्रदीप 

राजौरी गार्डन में एक बार पार्किंग को लेकर विवाद हुआ था। राजधानी में पार्किंग माफियाओं के बढ़ने से लोगोंको काफी परेशानी हो रही है। गलत तरह से वीइकल की पार्किंग करने से भी लोगों के बीच झगड़े हो रहे हैं। -सचिन 

एक बार पार्किंग को लेकर मेरे पिता का भी पड़ोसियों से विवाद हो गया था। पार्किंग एक बड़ा मुद्दा है , जिस परसरकार को सख्त नियम बनाने की जरुरत है। लोग गाड़ियां खड़ी करने को लेकर एक - दूसरे पर हमले कर रहे हैं।यह बहुत शर्मसार है। - अर्पणा 

कुछ लोगों के पास पार्किंग स्पेस नहीं है , लेकिन उन्होंने पब्लिक प्रॉपर्टी को अपनी पार्किंग बना लिया है।राजधानी में लोगों ने अवैध तरीके से खुद गाड़ियां खड़ी करने के लिए पार्किंग बना ली है। इस पर कार्रवाई होनीचाहिए। - सिमरन

PARKING PROBLEM IN COLONIES

Parking, in fact, is a serious problem. Every day you see some news or the other about fight over parking in different areas. One more reason for lack of parking space is conversion of single storey houses in to four-storey buildings, meaning four families in place of one or 8-10 cars in place of 2. The problem is compounded when the stilt parking in these multi-storey buildings is illegally used for commercial purposes and the cars are parked on the road.  It is high time, government/MCD has to formulate a policy to tackle this problem and then strictly implement it.

Solution to the parking problem

Dear Mr. Vohra ji,

My immediate reaction and solution to the parking problem is as follows based on my experience in our (Anand Vihar) colony.

- Identify in each block/area vacant spaces like nursery plots, parks/tot lots etc. for conversion into parking lots where the compound walls can be raised, high mast light installed, gates are provided and secured with a chowkidar who could look after the vehicles day/night and clean them also and thereby earn his livelihood from the charges (of course it has to be nominal on a monthly basis) recovered who park their vehicles based on the numbers and type of vehicles;

-kitchen gardens and encroachments in front of the houses to be demolished to make space for parking of vehicles;

-service lanes where provided have to be gated on both sides and vehicles of owners of the houses at the back of service lanes could profitably be used by adjustments where found necessary.

-All residents who have parking space (stilt parking area) below their flats should be forced to park their vehicles when they are no longer required

-identify the places for parking duly marked in front of markets, like Vikas Marg etc. for parking of vehicles who come to shopping in those areas;

Hospitals/Schools etc. should identify the spaces for parking of the vehicles of visitors etc. failing which no permission should be granted to do their business. As and when they are established parking area should be made compulsory as an integral part of building sanction by the authorities concerned. Roads etc. should be widened and wherever obstacles are found they have to be removed by the authorities concerned.

All the above require a coordinated approach by the Police/MCD and such other authorities to identify and take further course of action.

As a long term measure, the authorities concerned have to get constructed underground parking space below the parks, nursery plots etc. inside the colonies. Registration of vehicles should be restricted like in many countries i.e. Singapore, Japan etc.

Public transport like EMUs (Railways)/bus/metro should be encouraged and planned out in phases so that vehicular traffic on roads could get reduced considerably.

With deep regards,
TK Balu/Anand Vihar

10% of city eaten up by car spaces : Times of India


NEW DELHI: Finding parking space in Delhi is like a treasure hunt. The growing number of cars has led to a scramble for vacant slots and frayed nerves. Rajinder Bhatia's death in west Patel Nagar underlines a larger issue and a crime pattern that needs a closer look. According to a study by the Centre for Science and Environment, parking takes up nearly 10% of the city's space, just 1% less than the green cover. Delhi has 82 lakh registered vehicles and the addition of cars, many of them superfluous, will only compound parking problems in future.

With the lanes in residential areas always packed, fights have become routine. Ambulances, police vehicles and fire tenders often get stuck. "The area needed for parking vehicles is now double of what is taken up by slums in Delhi. The social inequity, shrinking of common areas and unhealthy environment will only get worse," said Anumita Roychoudhary, executive director, CSE.

To tackle this problem, some RWAs have restricted entry of cars, others have proposed parking lots beneath the parks. Many are using colony parks and vacant plots to squeeze in their cars. "There is no policy to curb purchase of cars.

Anyone can buy any number of cars without showing parking space. There is no policy," said Manjeet Singh of South Extension part-I RWA.

Another reason for the mess is the commercialization of residential roads. Banks, nursing homes, gym and departmental stores are essential but daily fights over parking outside houses are also taking their toll. Deflating tyres, towing and damaging cars has become common in such colonies

Since 2005 civic agencies have been collecting conversion charges from these areas. They had to provide parking facilities from this money.

"Not a single parking lot has come up. Where has the money gone?" said Rajiv Kakria of GK-I RWA. Of the 41 parking lots planned by the corporations since 2007, only three have been completed. Vasant Vihar residents' proposal for a parking lot beneath a park was shot down.

Unauthorized colonies as well as congested areas like Karol Bagh and Walled City are worse off. "The lanes are so narrow but people keep buying cars.

We need a policy or more people will be killed over parking rows," said B S Vohra of East Delhi RWAs Joint Front. Experts had suggested charges for street parking but political pressure put them in cold storage. "Public transport needs to improve to reduce reliance on cars," said Ashok Bhasin of North Delhi Residents Welfare Forum.

Quoting Tom Vanderbilt, author of Traffic, "Why we drive the way we do, equates with jungle laws", Roychoudhary summed it up pithily: "Humans hunt for parking the way animals hunt for food."

Policy on rooftop solar power generation for Delhi soon !



After years of wait, the decks are finally being cleared for rooftop solar power generation in the Capital. The Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission is expected to notify the proposal, which will see solar units fixed on rooftops, in two weeks’ time. The initiative envisages individual households producing solar power for their own consumption and also decreasing the peak time load on the power network.

The DERC is in the process of finalising regulations about its proposal to introduce net metering for rooftop solar power generation as per the guidelines laid down by the Union Ministry of New and Renewable Energy.

After the policy is notified, the Delhi Government will initiate putting of solar plants on government buildings, colleges and hospitals. It may be later followed at individual level. In fact, the Delhi Government may announce “production-based subsidy” and other incentives for solar power generation.

So far, Delhi doesn’t have a solar policy, a fact that is an obstacle in accessing incentives for producing solar energy.
