Parking Policy in Delhi: A Golden Opportunity?

I was just seeing internship projects at Centre for Civil Society, India’s leading think-tank. Quite a few are worth a read.

For instance this one deals with Parking problems in Delhi. It is by Yang Li, Andrew Humphries, Vedant Batra. They cover economics of parking in general and apply the ideas to Delhi:

The aim of this paper is to explore a neighborhood parking policy in Delhi, India from a cost and  benefit perspective in comparison with examples of differing systems of arranging parking from around the world. The broader objective is to elevate the understanding of parking policy from a rational economic focus on incentives that drives behavior. The suggested framework is based on three models of parking, conventional supply driven, demand driven and market driven.

Possible identifiers for further exploration and key fault lines that drive policy are shown within the neighborhood as well as in the broader international context. Discussion focuses on if and how applications of different models across international examples fulfill the objectives of each model. Assessment of model efficacy will be examined in comparison with one another. Furthermore, the potential for policy change and subsequent benefits in neighborhood case example is explored.

Very nicely written..
