Building violations in the form of not providing parking space, not complying with minimum parking requirements and converting parking space for other purposes have been commonly sighted in Chennai. In spite of the strict penal and regulation in the Rules, instances are replete as to the gross violations in various parts of Chennai. With the CMDA ―master plan‖ prescribing the norms for licensing of new buildings, there has been a check on such violations. However, old buildings located in the main centers of the city have been the major culprits for creating parking issues. These centers attract huge traffic, but in not providing sufficient parking space, it leads to spill over and traffic congestions in the locality. The issue is grave during peak hours with the traffic police finding it difficult to monitor the traffic.
