None of you has mentioned the parking status in Katra for those who travel by car. Do they have goverenment authorised parkings there? Are they enough or its a tough task to get one? And most important how safe are they and do you have to leave keys with them?

You can find parking easily.
But mostly private parkings are there.
You can ask any hotel, they can tell you where to park.
Private parking can charge Rs.50 per day to Rs.100 per day
or above if you reach there on Rush Time like Summer Holidays / Navratra etc.
Many Parkings are there on main road but most are on sides only, not on main road.
Few main road parkings are costlier and for few vehicles only.

Normally they do not want keys like in Delhi.
It depends on parking and its attendants.
If you are at a safe parking without much rush.
You can park without giving keys to them.
I avoid giving keys as when you are in between many vehicles only then they need to remove your vehicle.
Mostly they say they will physically call you when ever needed.
If they insist, tell them clearly that you are not giving them any keys.
You will prefer to come when required or will prefer another parking.
I parked at Shrine Boards's Stay with parking facility recently, they did not asked for keys.
