For e.g. no case goes to Supreme Court directly, it has to pass through maze of local judicial bodies & then high court & then if the Supreme law authority feels it’s important enough to hear the matter then the case is admitted there & heard & verdict is given. Though once admitted the process there after is fast enough in compare to local level things. But surely the said parking matter by a Mumbai base Panchali Co op society vs. the Developer M/s Nalchand Laloochand didn’t pop out in one night! In fact the case has been first filed with district court way back in 2004! In this entire process no private organization or association or segment of the society thought it’s important to monitor the case or to become party for the same! And now when hardly few including the most real estate dwellers, the society apex bodies & the media have gone through the judgment leave apart understanding it, all ready the hohallah has started about ongoing, forth coming as well completed projects & status! I read in news paper that even the existing flat holders can claim their money paid for the parking back from the developer. And in last 3 days from the news I have received calls from all segments about what’s the scene!
Agreed any new residential /commercial development has to be done in tune with the laws for keeping parking provisions for the users of such establishments & such space has to be utilized only for the purpose for which it has been kept. No two minds here, the question comes who will monitor this? For years since the real estate has been in existence transaction of parking place is a known thing then why suddenly this issue has popped up now? Answer lays in many things as day by day the space is becoming rare commodity especially in Metros! Similarly except few cities like Mumbai, Delhi & Calcutta, in mostly all the cities public transport doesn’t exist is a fact. Making more & more people opting for private vehicles, naturally increasing demand for the parking spaces. Even in above mentioned Metro's there is a big chunk of people who are not dependant on public transport for their commuting & have their own arrangement which usually is a car.
