more-inThe Delhi government aims to launch a dedicated app to check the presence of junk vehicles parked on city roads in accordance with the provisions of the Capital’s first comprehensive parking policy, sources claimed on Saturday. Tentatively named the ‘Khatara Gadi (Junk Vehicle) app’, the programme, through linkage with a centralised database of vehicles registered here, will be equipped to provide information about the age of a vehicle based on its registration number, the source added. The policy mandates impounding of junk vehicles — that is, petrol vehicles that are over 15 years old and diesel vehicles more than 10 years old. The Department will initially go after junk vehicles parked across the city, following which it intends to provide the service to the general public. The public will be able to contact the Department for de-registration of junk vehicles, before being guided through the process of disposing these at designated facilities.
