New Car Parking Rules Started in 2015

Updated 4th January 2015
The parking problems and related challenges have crossed the risky mark in Mumbai and the new rules and policies which were kept on hold till 2013 have been processed and implemented. The trail period of this rules will be 3 months in specific locations of city, categorised as location ‘A’, ‘B’, & ‘C’, details of same are listed below. The new rules brings 300 percent hike in pay parking rates compare to current rates for parking lots authorized by BMC.

The motto of applying such high rates and strict rules in new parking policies is to solve traffic congestion problems along with other challenges like illegal parking. Yearly permits to park a car on road outside once residential complex and housing society boundaries will be charges up to Rs.1800 at prime locations in category ‘A’ which covers area from Colaba to Mahim and similar permit charges at western suburbs residential will be Rs.1200 per year and for Eastern suburbs will be Rs.600 yearly. This rules and charges are for one single car parking slot which will be allocated on road outside every residential localities. As per the new rules the process and permits needed scheme will be called ‘Residential Permit Scheme’ by BMC.

Few Important Questions on Such Rules

  1. First question here is who is going to keep watch on the unused but allocated bay with specific permits given to a car owner ?
  2. Have BMC already arranged share auto stands, share a taxi locations if they want a easy de-congested road ?
  3. What are the systems listed in new rules that secures the parking lots for which a car owner pays this yearly charges ?
  4. Will not people start fighting with each other due to encroachments in paid bays ?
  5. Will it actually help de congestion and solve illegal parking problem ?
  6. Will common man afford such high parking rates ?
  7. Will a middle class person who purchased his car just to get rid of local train crowd agree to take public transport instead ?
  8. Have BMC and other authorized agencies taking care of parking related issues though of “WHAT IF ON A DAY WHEN FOR SOME REASONS PUBLIC TRANSPORT CRASHES” ?
  9. Have they already worked on the encroached footpaths which was shown by leading newspapers like Mid-Day and others.

And i am sure you might have many such questions in mind (Please Comment your Views at End Of this article).

The Parking Location Categories and Hourly Charges / Car

  • Type ‘A’ Category Location (High Congestion Area) = Rs.60 Per Hour.
  • Type ‘B’ Category Location (Moderately Congested Area) = Rs.40 Per Hour.
