Noida DM scales up operations against illegal parking

Posted: Oct 12, 2017     By Avishek Dubey

The district administration of Gautam Buddh Nagar will soon start issuing notices to organisations, institutes and hospitals on using footpaths and cycle tracks — or any other public space — to park vehicles illegally.

District magistrate (DM) BN Singh has ordered city magistrate Mahindra Singh to start sending notices.

The city magistrate has now asked the traffic police and local police stations to prepare a list of educational institutes, malls and other organisation that are illegally using public property for parking despite having their own parking lots.

“Several institutes on the expressway in Sector 62 and other places in the city have been using premises outside their campuses for parking purposes. Illegal parking leads to unnecessary traffic issues,” explained the DM.

The notice will ask the organisations to vacate illegally occupied parking spaces within 15 days.

The DM also emphasised that the notices will be sent under Section 133 (conditional order for removal of nuisance) of the CrPC. “If the organisations continue to park illegally, we can also initiate FIR against them,” Singh added.

Noida Authority has also been roped in by the DM for identifying places where illegal parking is rampant.  

Around 25 notices will be issued to the owners or heads of organisations and malls, authority officials confirmed.
