Following growing complaints of high fees being charged, paid parking at 39 malls and 35 hospitals falling in the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) area has been banned. Can we get a hell yes!
The decision was made today at a Standing Committee meeting of the SDMC. Private parking operators at these hospitals and malls will now have to allow free parking, or take prior permission from the SDMC for charging a fee, according to this report.
They'll issue a circular soon regarding the implementation of this decision—which is when we'll learn whether our favourite malls are on the list—so stay tuned.
