Encouraged by the Delhi High Court,traders of Khan Market and the NDMC have finally resolved their spat over free parking issue.

Informing the court about their amicable settlement on Thursday,Sanjeev Sachdeva,counsel for the Khan Market Traders Association said they were willing to deposit with the NDMC Rs 5.34 lakh as per the civic body’s demand for allowing them free parking in the shopping area.

As per the settlement terms,the fee would cover three parking spots,namely Khan Market,Mini Khan Market and Prithviraj Lane. Parking at Loknayak lane will no longer be free.

Detailing the clauses,Sachdeva said that while the front and rear side of Khan Market will continue to have free parking facility,the other two spots can have free parking only if the traders of that side contribute to the fee.

The NDMC counsel also expressed satisfaction over the settlement terms. Recording their submission,a bench headed by Justice S K Kaul disposed of the petition. It also directed the Land and Development Officer (L&DO) to hand over the land, within three months to the NDMC to enable them to make multi-level parking there.

After a single-judge bench had refused to grant any relief to the traders,they had moved in an appeal. The bench however,had asked the parties to explore the possibilities of a harmonious solution to the problem.
