The MCD has decided to lodge FIRs against illegal parking lot contractors and parking mafia of the city, both of which have been fleecing people for quite some time now.


“We have been receiving a lot of complaints from people about this. The contractors are also parking more vehicles than what is authorised. We have decided to forward all such complaints to the Delhi Police’s crime branch,” said Yogender Chandolia, chairman of MCD’s Standing Committee.

Chandolia even met the police commissioner in this regard. “He has assured us that strict action will be taken against these contractors,” he added. 

After it was found out that there are more unauthorised parking lots in the city compared to legal ones, the civic agency has been trying to convert such sites into legal parking lots. “While there were 116 authorised parkings till December end, today there are 295,” said a senior MCD official.

The MCD has also decided to cancel the contracts of those found guilty of overcharging.
