Click pictures of wrongly parked cars and get 10% reward
The government has taken out a new and innovative scheme with which you can win prizes if you report about wrongly parked cars. Yes, you will get a share of the fine for those cars. All you have to do is click the pictures of anything you notice as such and send it to the government.
This reward scheme has been announced by the Transport Ministry of Government of India. People can freely capture the images of illegally placed vehicles while sending it to official helpline number stated by Nitin Gadkari, Transport Minister.
Things to know
- What do you have to do? You simply have to take the pictures of those vehicles which are not parked at the right space, and send them to the official phone numbers.
- Reward: You will be rewarded with 10% share of fine Rs. 500 (which is the fixed amount for the no-parking spaced cars).
- Need for the scheme: Experts claim that car parking has become a major issue in the urban areas. People park illegally on roads because parking spaces are becoming fulfilled.
How to resolve this problem?
The reward is only a temporary solution. The actual problem is the unavailability of space. The government is also focusing on the long term resolution by creating multi-level car parking system. Inside the Transport Bhawan, it has stated that parking for vehicles will be multi-story while becoming the first government building.
To do this, the government will construct a seven floors storey (excluding the ground floor). The National Highways & Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited (NHIDCL) will construct this.
The entire construction will span across an area of 314 square meters and it will have a height of 22 meters. A budget of Rs. 9 crores has been dedicated to this. After this construction project completes, the building will be able to house 112 cars inside it.
This is why the government is thinking about bringing in the Motor Vehicle Bill in the reforms currently. This bill will include the fixed fines while altering the rules for those who breaks the rules of traffic while including the major details of the licensing system.
This is not just a reward program but a total change in the direction of vehicle management. The government has provided a short term solution in the form of the reward. However, for the long term we can expect more radical changes in the way vehicles are managed in the country.
As per the reports of the NITI Aayog, about 1 giga tone of carbon emission will be cut down by 2030.
