Delhi Metro Parking Charges Hiked From May 1

Delhi Metro users would have to shell out extra from May 1 to park their vehicles in Delhi Metro's parking space. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has decided to hike charges by 50 per cent across categories and slabs. The move comes seven months after the steep metro fare hike that resulted in loss of Rs 3 lakh riders on a daily basis.

DMRC has said in the statement that the hike has come after a gap of five years and is reasonable when compared to higher charges levied by civic authorities.

Delhi CM condemns the hike

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has tweeted his reaction in which he said that an increase in parking charges at the city's Metro stations will "kill" the transporter and "increase pollution". 

New parking rates for residential areas to be decided by July

It was in January when Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal approved the ‘Delhi Maintenance and Management of Parking Rules, 2017’ under which new parking rates for public and residential areas are likely to be finalised by July. The government has uploaded the rules for comments and suggestions from the public, following which some amendments could still be made.

Under the new rules, the minimum parking rates across Delhi will be fixed by a ‘Base Parking Fee (BPF) Committee’, headed by the transport commissioner. The BPF will be revised every year. The rates for surface and off-site parking lots will be decided in multiples of the BPF.

Also, the parking charges will be linked to pollution levels.  For instance, the multiples shall be doubled in case of ‘severe+’ or ‘emergency’ levels of ambient air quality.
