The National Green Tribunal has directed the Delhi government and the municipal corporations to ensure availability of appropriate parking facilities for cars and discourages road-side parking. A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar slammed authorities for not complying with its earlier orders to decongest traffic and asked them to take steps in a holistic manner. Why have you not created an appropriate parking place for cars? You, people, are responsible for creating a mess on roads by creating two-three lanes of parking. Why dont you cancel the agreement with contractors who abuse their terms. These parking people become officers and traffic police just watch them, the bench said.

For instance, the multiple parking at Sarojni Nagar remains empty which is undisputed fact and all the vehicles are permitted to be parked on roads where some contractors collect money and add to the congestion of traffic.
