“In two days, we will start sending notices to all the organizations who are involved in illegal parking. Once we get the list of such places, our procedure will start. There are many institutes in Sector 125 wherein they have been using the space outside their campuses for the parking purpose. Illegal parking leads to unnecessary traffic issues,” said Mahindra Singh, city magistrate.
