SDMC launches Delhi’s first Smart Parking App ‘MyParking’
This app will provides information about total capacity of vehicles to be parked in the SDMC parkings, space used for parking and space available for parking in each parking site.
New Delhi: Union Minister I&B and Youth& Sports Anurag Thakur and mayor of South Delhi Mukesh Suryan on Thursday launched Delhi’s first smart parking App ‘MyParking’ for real time parking information of SDMC parking sites .
The SDMC in association with Broadcast Engineering Consultants India Limited (BECIL) has developed this parking app. Both the organizations signed MOU in this regard. As per the MOU , the BECIL is the Implementing agency for APP based smart parking system in the jurisdiction of SDMC.
On the occasion, Union Minister for I&B and Youth& Sports Thakur said that the introduction of this parking APP would smoothen the process of booking parking slots as a citizen can see the availability of slots remotely and even can book the same.
Therefore, this mobile APP would provide an altogether new parking experience to the citizens of Delhi. With the use of this smart parking APP, which is cashless and paperless transaction mode, kilos of paper (since at present parking slips are issued on paper) will be saved on daily basis, for the country which indirectly will save the trees resulting in reduction of environment pollution.
Mayor Suryan said that there has always been a demand from users of these parkings for information regarding total capacity of vehicles to be parked in the parkings, space used for parking and space available for parking in each parking. Also the consumers/users frequently demand for cashless mode of payment of parking charges since they have to face difficulties in making this payment in cash.
Commissioner Gynesh Bharti said that at present SDMC is operating 145 surface parking sites, six multi level parking sites and two automated parking sites. This app will provide information about total capacity of vehicles to be parked in the SDMC parkings, space used for parking and space available for parking in each parking site.
