Karnataka Deputy CM G Parameshwara hinted about the possibility of imposing a ban on the registration of new vehicles in Bangalore to curb the pollution and address the traffic woes. He firmly believes that the situation in Bangalore will be worse than Delhi if some tough measures haven't been taken at the earliest.
Parameshwara informed State Government has been considering temporary ban on registration of new vehicles apart from other alternatives.
Way back in June this year, The Bangalore Transport Department proposed banning registration of new vehicles if the buyer doesn't have a designated parking space. Any such measures will prompt people to prefer public transport rather than buying four wheelers.
People wonder if the ban on registrations of new vehicles really the solution. Better if Government focus on the production of electric vehicles if it really committed to find a long-term solution.
