India is opening itself up for problems, Parking Problems

India is beginning to impose parking requirements. They look around, see a lot of cars on the street parking every which way and assume that the solution is more parking. The solution may be charging for parking and good enforcement. You can read the article here.

Over building of parking is already happening in some Indian cities. From the Article:

But creating too much parking space could also be a problem, builders point out. In Punjab and Noida, where recently changed building norms prescribe very high parking facilities, Credai has approached the government to relax the norms.

“Parking space must be optimal. In Punjab, many projects have basement parking lots that remain unused,” said Bajaj. “Apart from turning to be a maintenance hassle, unused underground parking lots can also pose a law and order problem as they could be used by unscrupulous elements,” he added.

Plus, they add to the cost of the development and raise the rents. Before they begin mandating parking requirements, they need to charge, enforce, and use the money generated to enhance the area. The Shoup-dog would be proud.
