Advocate-Selvakumar-S RER frank talk on Parking problems in Bangalore


Bangalore is one of the fastest growing cities in India. A large number of people have come and settled down in Bangalore and the influx is going on unchecked. With the increase in population, the number of vehicles plying on the roads also has increased. At present there are about 30 lakhs vehicles in Bangalore which is to go up steeply in the days to come. 

Where can a civic amenity site be earmarked?

There is an acute shortage of parking slots in and around most of the business centres such as in Koramangala, Jayanagar, M.G road, R.T.Nagar, City Market, K.G.Road, Russel Market, Central Bus Stand, Railway Station etc. Popular convents and schools where children of well to do families study also create parking problem during the opening and closing hours of the school. Similarly, popular hospitals, cinema theatres, shopping malls and nursing homes also add up to the problems of parking. The parking problem has in turn brought in traffic jams on the roads leading to wastage of man-hour. 


It is not that the concerned authorities in Bangalore have become mute spectators of this problem. They are trying their best to ease out traffic congestion and also are trying to provide better road management with good public transport system. The Government shall have to provide new parking slots in commercial areas to solve the parking problem of the city. But, much more needs to be done to find a solution to this problem. 

As a step in this direction, the draft building bye laws, 2008 has been finalized by the Government. According to this, a minimum of 40 parking spaces will be insisted upon for theatres and auditoriums while in star hotels, parking space is insisted on to provide one car parking space for every two rooms plus additional parking space for the visitors parking. In the draft bye laws, there is also a provision for terrace and multi-stage parking

There are various other suggestions in the draft bye laws which if implemented may reduce the parking problem at least marginally. It is suggested that multi-level car parking system can be introduced by the BBMP on its lands in CBDs and other intensely populated areas
