Mumbai: BMCs body begins survey to find parking spaces in the city and suburbs

The much-needed provision to set up Mumbai’s Parking Authority (MPA), mentioned in the Development Control and Promotion Regulations (DCPR 2034), has finally been implemented. The body, which will create a database of all parking slots in Mumbai, had its first meeting earlier this month. A team of urban planners from it have started surveying the off-street parking spaces in three pilot wards, namely: D ward (Grant Road, Nana Chowk, etc), R Central (Borivli West) and T ward (Mulund) after which they will move on to on-street parking lots.
