Why free parking is (a) right 6.8.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Parking vehicles seems to be the most debated topic in Ahmedabad nowadays. It is being argued that free parking by Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) means ordinary citizens paying for services given to car owners, which is unfair. It may be free for AMC, but the user has actually paid for it. Most residents buy cars and two-wheelers, as the civic body has failed to provide a reliable, affordable and accessible (it should be comfortable as well, but let's not be so optimistic) public transport. Ahmedabad Municipal Transport Service (AMTS), once a reputed name (for its service) even nationally, is in a pathetic condition, quality-wise and quantity-wise. The much-hyped Bus Rapid Transport System (BRTS) is route specific and not accessible to all as last mile connectivity is not provided. Feeder buses, that found a mention in the original plan of BRTS, are nowhere to be seen. Citizens, who want honour commitments, will not risk using public transport in its current form. So, buying private vehicles is a ...

Maharashtra Government proposes 1% stamp duty hike to fund transport projects 24.7.2018 DNA: Opinion
If the government's latest proposal passes, Mumbaikars will have to brace themselves to pony up additional one per cent stamp duty on sale, gift and mortgage of immovable property. The state urban development department has moved a bill to amend the Mumbai Municipal Corporation Act that will levy a surcharge by way of stamp duty in Greater Mumbai. It aims to use the revenue generated to finance urban transport projects, including Metro, monorail, bus rapid transport system, freeways and sealink, which entail investment of more than Rs 1.06 lakh crore. However, the realty industry has warned that it will severely impact the sentiments of buyers and affect the already-down property transactions. A state law & judiciary department officer told DNA,'' The bill has been moved by the urban development department on July 19, but could not be taken up for discussion during the Monsoon Session of the state legislature, which concluded last week. However, the government may issue an ordinance or table the bill ...
