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.
