matter wherein officials of civic body have already been indicted A reality check done by Chandigarh Newsline found that at some places there were not any e-ticketing machines and attendants were not even wearing uniforms While Rs 5 is to be charged for parking of cars (except at Elante Mall parking where Rs 10 is charged) the parking attendants were seen flouting norms and taking Rs 10 from people at parking lots of Sukhna Lake Sector 22-B and Sector 35 Similarly for two-wheelers for which the parking fee is Rs 2 contractors were charging Rs 5 “I did not know that the parking rate is Rs 5 until you told me In fact on the slip it was mentioned Rs 10 so I paid the amount” said Anirudh a visitor to the Sukhna Lake Other visitors to the lake too said that they were charged Rs 10 for parking their vehicles A ruckus was created in the parking lot of Sector 22 on Sunday when local councillor Pardeep Chhabra found the attendants fleecing people “There is no check on the parking attendants Innocent people are being cheated Here the contractor is smartly giving slips of Rs 10 manually to all the car owners which mention M Entry which means multiple entry fee But every car owner is being charged Rs 10” said Chhabra Mentioning “M entry” on the parking slip implies that a person can enter the parking lot multiple times However the commuters who want to come to the market only once were also being given multiple entry slips charging them Rs 10 A similar situation existed at Sector 35-C parking lot “ When I asked the attendant why he is charging Rs 10 from me he replied that this is the rate” said Raman a visitor to the market Here too the attendant issued a slip of Rs 10 wherein “M entry” was mentioned even as the visitor did not mention about making entry multiple times At the Kiran cinema parking lot a shopkeeper Ravinder Singh alleged that the attendants misbehaved if one objected to overcharging “Even for two-wheelers they are charging Rs 5 If you object they misbehave” said Singh adding that he would complain to the Joint Commissioner on Monday Violations at other paid parking lots included haphazard parking attendants not wearing uniforms lack of proper marking for vehicles non-display of parking rates and absence of e-ticketing machines The vigilance department which conducted a probe to check irregularities in the paid parking lot of Sector
