Congestion tax being considered for DelhiFor the first time in India, authorities are considering to levy a congestion tax during peak hours to decongest Delhi city, Lieutenant-Governor Anil Baijal said on Monday.“It is still work in progress. We have invited experts to study it. The charges are yet to be worked out.In most countries, there is a congestion charge. We are also looking at this alternative as a way to decongest some of the roads which get clogged, particularly in the peak hours,”
A levy would automatically deduct using a ‘tags’ system once a vehicle enters a congested road, he said, adding that they were also considering to make certain stretches ‘one-way for traffic’ to combat congestion.
