Why are all these vehicles parked in front of East End’s Gate No 2?

This is the post excerpt.

Residents of East End Apartments in Mayur Vihar Phase I Extension are worried that the road outside the society’s Gate No 2 will soon turn into a congested parking lot. The problem emerged about six months back, when it was decided that a parking space behind the New Ashok Nagar Metro station would be converted into quarters for the Metro staff.

The plot, which was so far being used as parking space, falls under the jurisdiction of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC). DMRC has now constructed a residential society for Metro officials in its place. In the absence of a parking space nearby, outsiders, auto-rickshaws and rickshaw pullers have started parking in the area.

JP Verma, the general secretary of the East End Apartments managing committee, said, “The situation is still under control, but soon the area will be crowded with parked vehicles. DMRC should have provided a parking space prior to converting the old one into quarters for the Metro staff. Several people park their cars and bikes here, and take the Metro to reach their destination. We have discussed this issue several times and have decided to write to DMRC about it.”

When City Spidey got in touch with DMRC officials to discuss the matter, a senior public relations official said, “The department does not have any land to allot for parking now. We have asked Delhi Development Authority to provide some space for parking.”
