LPARD = [logical]
Default: LPARD = .FALSE. 

Description: Determines whether partial (band or k-point decomposed) charge densities are evaluated. See also Band decomposed charge densities.

We want to stress again, that the orbitals read from WAVECAR must be converged in a separate prior run. If only LPARD is set and none of the tags discussed in Band decomposed charge densities, the total charge density is evaluated from the orbitals and written to CHGCAR.
