SMC issue notices to officers for over charging of parking fee

Shimla, Mar 27 (UNI) Commissioner of Shimla Municipal Corporation issued notices to the officers concerned to take cognizance on over charging of parking fee at Parking Complex near Lift Shimla on PPP mode.
In a letter addressed to Parmod Kumar Sood (Director), Shimla Tolls & Projects Pvt. Ltd. , Keonthal Complex , Khalini , Shimla - 02 Commissioner of Shimla MC said parking Complex near Lift Shimla is over charging the parking fee as a newspaper as reported on March 26, 2023 that a vehicle was charged a parking fee of Rs. 200 per vehicle for a time interval of 57 minutes only which is disproportionately high and totally unreasonable.
SMC already communicated to the officers concerned on July 24, 2017 the maximum parking fee including GST for a vehicle for a parking interval of 2 hours is only Rs . 35/- whereas the vehicle was charged Rs. 200/- for just 57 minutes. ' This has not only tarnished the image of MC Shimla but has also given a wrong message to the tourists who visit the capital with great enthusiasm and spirit. Our state economy is highly dependent on tourism and such practices affect the interest of the state adversely.
