India has always being facing the traffic problems, but now to add on to it parking is also become an issue. People spend most of their time searching for parking spot.. Some problems faced are given below-

Parking in residential areas

Residential apartments in Indian metros almost always see the construction of parking spaces due to the notion that residential plans without them will not attract buyers. This increases the overall cost of construction which becomes even worse when parking spaces go unoccupied. Because parking construction costs are the same regardless of whether the building is a luxury high-rise or modest apartments, lower-income residents, who are less likely to own cars, end up shouldering the burden of parking costs, effectively subsidizing parking for other people. Residents also often suffer from spill over parking because of commercial visitors and excessive vehicle ownership.

Parking on special occasions

In Indian cities, special occasions mean unending traffic – festivals, concerts, college fests etc. A large number of vehicles come out on the streets, exerting immense pressure on parking spaces. This means more cruising, chaos, quarrels and long queues than usual. For instance, during Durga Puja in Kolkata, almost the entire city is out, which spells trouble for parking availability. As pandals encroach roads, traffic becomes so terrible that distances requiring fifteen minutes are covered in approximately two hours.

One of the primary reasons behind rising vehicle-related crimes in India is the tendency of the owners to park their vehicle at unauthorized places. Also, as per the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act of 2019, you may have to pay a penalty of ₹5,000 in case your vehicle is found to be parked in a ‘No Parking Zone’. Hence, you must always park your vehicle at dedicated parking spaces only, including garages, parking lots, roadside parking zones etc. This way, you will not only minimize the chances of sustaining theft or damage to your vehicle but also avoid incurring a hefty traffic fine.
