The municipal corporation (MC) auctioned six parking sites and a night shelter, and fetched around Rs 1.39 crore on Thursday.

The maximum bid of rs 60.10 lakh - bought by Lalit Joshi - went for the Elante mall parking in Industrial Area, Phase 1.
Bid for the Shanti Kunj parking in Sector 16 was the lowest and fetched around Rs 2.80 lakh. The other parking lots like Jagat and Sons, Sector 17, and the semi- automatic parking opposite Sector 22 bus stand went for Rs 14.90 lakh and Rs 32 .10 lakh, respectively. Besides, the Sukhna Lake parking, Sector 9D and a nigh shelter parking in Sector 26 were auctioned at rs 20.60 lakh, Rs 8.25 lakh and Rs 1.21 lakh, respectively.

No bidder participated for Sector 43B parking citing "high reserve price of `10 lakh", though seven of them took part in technical bids.

The parking lots at Sukhna Lake, Elante mall, Shanti Kunj, Sector 16, and Sector 9D were surrendered to the MC by the contractors recently. The civic body had even terminated the licences of Sukhna Lake and Elante mall parking owing to complaints of overcharging by the contractors. During auction for the paid parking lots in January, the MC had earned Rs 4.15 crore.
