Car in no-parking zone: Be ready to fork out Rs 1,000-10,000 fine

Mumbai: To address the perennial traffic issues, the BMC has decided to impose a fine that could range from Rs 1,000 to Rs 10,000 on those parking their vehicles in no-parking zones.

At a meeting with ward officials on Wednesday, BMC commissioner Praveen Par-deshi directed them to penalise vehicle-owners who park in no-parking zones.The BMC has provided parking lots at 146 spots, in which 30,000 cars and 4800 two-wheelers can be parked at any given time.

Many old, unused vehicles are parked in various places; but, under the new rule, if any vehicle is illegally parked within a one-km radius of a civic parking lot, it will be considered as parked in a no-parking zone and will attract a penalty of Rs 1,000-Rs10,000. The new rule will be applicable from July 7.
