In one of the most congested suburbs in Mumbai, Bandra and Khar, residents have been reeling under the ramifications of traffic congestions. This scenario has reportedly worsened owing to narrow roads as well as parking on both sides of the road. In order to address this issue, the traffic department has implemented an odd-even parking system, reports stated. 

According to accounts, Raj Tilak Roushan, DCP Traffic (Hq and Central), issued a notification wherein a new system has been implemented on 13 roads. In accordance with the new system, when the date is even, parking will be permitted on the east side of the road.

On the other hand, when the date is odd, parking will be allowed on the west side of the road. Apart from this, four roads have been made one way. This has been done to ease vehicular movement. In addition to this, no parking zones have been announced at the Mount Mary Road, cited narratives. 

Based on reports, this will be done from Mount Mary Church to its junction with Kane Road, highlighted the traffic department notification. 

This development comes in the aftermath of the newly appointed, Mumbai Police Commissioner, Sanjay Pandey mentioning that starting March 6, vehicles parked in no-parking areas across Mumbai will not be towed by the traffic police for a week. Pandey added that this will be tested in the city on an experimental basis.
