In a move to decongest roads in India, the central government is planning to allow registration of vehicles only after production of parking space availability certificate to the authorities.

"In future, no car or vehicle should be registered without adequate parking space availability certificate," Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu said at an event in New Delhi today.

Naidu said that his ministry was in discussions with Surface Transport ministry in this regard. 

"I am holding discussions with Nitin Gadkari and also sensitising the states. We are moving in that direction (to get such a mechanism implemented)," he said. 

The minister further said that permission would not be given for any construction unless it has a provision for toilets. 

“It would be mandated (that) no permission would be given to any construction without a toile,” the minister added.

During the event, the minister also launched 'Google toilet locator' that would help people search toilets in Delhi-NCR as well as Indore and Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh. 

 

The Minister said the Google platform offers over 6,200 public toilet locations, including their availability in shopping malls, hospitals, bus/train stations, petrol pumps and metro stations.
