Pune: A day after a report published in Sakal Times, ‘Parking contractor at rly stn violating DRM’s order’, the Pune railway administration imposed a fine on the contractor.

The contractor was collecting parking charges illegally from four-wheelers that are entering the railway station premises only to drop or pick up passengers, thus, violating the order issued by Milind Deouskar, DRM. Deouskar had earlier warned the contractor not to collect the charge.

DRM responded via Twitter, “Inconvenience deeply regretted. Pune division has taken serious note of repeating complaints of such nature and maximum penalty has been imposed. Surprise checks have been intensified to curb such malpractices.”

Parking area attendants are recovering the parking charges from car owners, including app-based cab services. Many people face this situation when they arrive at the Pune station to drop or pick up their family members or friends.
