During a visit to Feroze Gandhi market, regular visitor claimed that regularly parking employees have fight with people regarding the overcharging issue.
Several visitors claimed that these parking contractor employees use to behave rudely with the visitors and forced them to pay high parking fee.
Some of the visitors claimed that parking contractor staff also uses to charge parking fee on the vehicles which were parked in the service lane as they are violating the high court orders by charging fee on the service lane and under yellow lane.

But they are charging Rs 10 and 20 for the respective vehicles”.
