No solution for parking in South Mumbai: BMC relies on parking authority

An effort to make additional parking space available in the southern part of the city as a pilot project under the new parking policy could not bring the desired results. Thus, parking woes continue to haunt people in Cuffe Parade, Colaba, Marine Drive and Fort.

After the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) received flak for not managing on-street as well as off-street vehicle parking efficiently, it set up the ‘Mumbai Parking Authority’ (MPA) as mentioned in the Development Plan (DP) 2034. This is a first-of-its-kind initiative in the country where any civic body has set up an authority to manage parking in a city.
