The enforcement wing of municipal corporation (MC) on Wednesday conducted a surprise check at the paid parking lot of Elante Mall and found violations.


These included non-functional CCTV cameras and absence of e-ticketing machine. Attendants were found not wearing proper uniforms and no parking attendant was deployed inside the parking area at a distance of 50 metres.

A report has been prepared and sent to Sarita Malik, additional commissioner, MC, for action.
Earlier in July, a fine of Rs 7,500 was imposed on the Elante Mall parking lot contractor for violations.

During a reality check by HT in July, it was found that the parking contractor was overcharging visitors. While the approved fee for four-wheelers for a whole day is `10, `20 were being charged for the past five months.

In the finance and contract committee meeting held last month, it was decided that if the contractor was caught overcharging for the seventh time, he would pay Rs 10,000 as fine. For the first overcharging complaint, the fine is Rs 500, then Rs 1,000, Rs 1,500, Rs 2,500, Rs 5,000 and Rs 7,500, for the second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth complaints respectively.
