I fought many times to the parking people as they are charging double from the actual charge.” Many visitors claimed that contractor has deployed the goons which use to manhandle with the visitors to overcharge the vehicles. Few months ago former Municipal Commissioner GK Singh had also issued the show cause notice to parking contractor against huge number of complaints but things still remained unchanged.
