Inspiration-Parking Trouble? Sit Back, Relax and Let ‘Get My Parking’ Find You a Spot


Get My Parking is a one-year-old startup founded by IIT Madras alumnus, Chirag Jain, and FMS Delhi graduate, Rasik Pansare.

We have all seen, it cars circling an area slowly and stealthily like hawks closing in on their prey, with drivers training their eyes on the side of the road lest they miss any smidgen of available space to park their cars.Parking is quite a task in metro cities but a new app might just be the answer to the parking woes of city residents.This Delhi-based company is trying to provide a smart solution to parking problems. The founders have developed an app that helps people find parking spaces even before they reach their destination. The company garnered appreciation for its work in Ujjain during the Kumbh Mela and received praise from Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself.The highly useful Android application enables a driver to not just locate a parking space on the map, but also to reserve it in advance. The driver can also pay for the parking ticket using online payment or m-wallet. The application also provides navigation to the drivers to arrive at the nearest parking lot.

According to the IBM Global Parking Survey undertaken in 20 cities (including New Delhi and Bangalore from India), on an average, 30% of the traffic slowdown is usually caused by parking difficulties. It can take anywhere from 20-25 minutes for a person to find a parking space in the central area of a metropolitan city. The unavailability of parking spaces causes congestion on roads, which adds to the plight of commuters.“With smart parking apps, you don’t simply save time, but also fuel,” says Rasik. “Cars slow down in search of parking and waste a lot of fuel in the process. Smart parking can solve that issue and contribute to bringing down the carbon emissions.” The Get My Parking website claims that if smart parking facilities are employed, carbon emissions could reduce by 15-20% on average.
