NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): In order to curb the parking issues, the Supreme Court-appointed body – Environment Pollution (Prevention and Control) Authority (EPCA), has decided to experiment with the move to link Delhi Metro smart cards with parking lots in areas, including Lajpat Nagar, Kamla Nagar, and Krishna Nagar.
Linking the Metro card with parking systems could ensure a healthy culture where the same card could be used for moving around the city. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) could study the suggestion further and get back to us on the same said by Sunita Narain, member of the EPCA.
The move that was decided at a meeting of the EPCA comes as a part of the pilot project to decongest roads, following which people will soon be able to use the Delhi Metro smart cards for paying the parking fee. Apart from this move, radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags and QR codes are other means to streamline the city’s parking.
