BMC proposes congestion tax to reduce no of vehicles on road


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.
