With an attempt to control the amount of air pollution released from vehicles, MCGM has decided to bring down the level. It has submitted a three options plan to the state government in this regard.
The three suggestions include: a complete ban on new car and bike registrations in the city after a cutoff date, a ceiling on new registrations each year and approving registrations only after proof of parking space in a housing society or complex is submitted by a buyer. These measures would cut the rapid growth of new vehicles on city roads and help avoid parking congestion.
The proposal called ‘Comprehensive Mobility Plan’ (CMP), also suggests imposing a ‘congestion tax’ in some zones.
