The problem is not with an average 3 cars per family if they are driven everyday as there can be an equal number of working people as there are cars in a family. The route cause lies when there are cars in a family which can be even a single one, which are not driven and are just there to be parked on the roads and are driven sparsely, to which even we cannot object as the person owning may be using the so called best public transport system.

IMO, there is enough place available to park vehicles in the city. But if there is going to be an average of 2-3 cars per family, then authorities will have to do something to control it.
Control is not the only solution which may not be implemented completely, as the authorities are more concerned with their vote banks rather than with other issues. A better alternative can be facilitation of basic infrastructure along with proper restraint and hefty fines wherever necessary.

Delhi Metro is going to provide better connectivity in the coming years and very few days ago, union transport minister gave a green flag to E-rickshaws.
What delhi metro will do in the future is for all of us to see as and when that happens and the Delhi high court has ordered a ban on plying of e-rickshaws in the national capital until the law is amended. That is why it is nowhere to be seen on the roads of delhi.

Hope against hope that we will have new road laws and driving in India would be at least less chaotic. This topic has been discussed many times by the ministry however it is yet to see the light of the day. Understand that changing laws in our country is not so easy however can they not start implementing the modified laws or add laws in a phased manner.

Don't you think it might be cheaper to rent an apartment with a dedicated parking spot when you are buying a car and then shift out of it next year rather than pay the road tax and sales tax again?

I'm sure all RTO agents would invest and rent out a few unoccupied flats and sublet it their clients till the registration is over. After that, give the same spot to the next client.

Even if my current budget cannot afford a flat with dedicated parking, I can rent out an apartment with parking in some area for a year and make the purchase during that time. Once the car is registered, I don't have to worry about this for next 15 years and can move back to a cheaper place without parking and park on the road side.

How is the law going to handle the above scenario?

Is there any update/news on new Motor Vehicle Act? I was hoping that it will be tabled in current session of the parliament. I could not find any news except one that legalize e-rickshaws on Delhi roads.

Does anyone know if there is any specific provisions for Automatic transmission cars in the new act? For example a separate AT license (for those who only can/want to drive AT cars only and don't want to drive or give a test in MT car)? Or for registration of AT cars as Invalid carriage? (Currently my AT car is stuck with dealer for 2 weeks due to not being able to register as Invalid carriage since the AT is from manufacturer and not modified by mechanic - I have a left leg disability).
