New Delhi: Upset over not receiving no-objection certificates for a large number of proposed parking sites in the national capital, the MCD will approach the Delhi Police and Lt Governor to resolve the matter.

The issue was discussed at a meeting of the MCD Standing Committee today.

The civic body had invited tenders for 225 parking sites but the traffic police has refused NoC for 180 of them. The sites for which clearance has been refused, already have unauthorised parkings, leaders and members of the ruling BJP in MCD said.

Standing Committee Chairman Yogender Chandolia said MCD will approach the Delhi Police and Lt Governor to resolve the issue.

"Unauthorised parkings are already there in such sites. There is no reason why police should not give NoC. We will tell them as well as the LG that the civic body needs revenue and the sites should be regularised. If there is genuine problem, we are ready to delete some sites from the list, but we need these parking lots to ease traffic congestion," he said.

He also alleged a section of policemen in nexus with the parking mafia are allowing such parking lots to run illegally.
