New Delhi: Those indulging in unauthorised parking in the city will have to cough up money, as an intensive drive will be initiated in the city against the menace of unlawful parking and encroachment of the roads in the city. 

Lieutenant governor  (L-G) Anil Baijal directed the special commissioner of traffic police to start an awareness campaign on unauthorised parking and encroachment on roads from Thursday, so that citizens would be aware about fines, which they will have to pay in case of violations. 

“An intensive challan drive will be started from Monday,” an official statement from the L-G’s office stated on Wednesday. The decision was taken at a meeting chaired by the L-G to review the status of encroachment removal and road blockage on 29 traffic corridors. 

Challans will be issued based on weight of the articles seized, as per the statement. Mr Baijal urged officers that all types of encroachments should be removed from the 29 identified stretches, as directed by the Delhi HC. He also directed traffic police to strictly enforce ‘no parking’ on declared stretches.
