Pune Municipal Corporation — No Parking Zone | PMC is collecting improper fine
Pune District, Maharashtra, India
-- No Parking Zone | PMC is collecting improper fine --
Reason: Parking vehicle in a "No Parking" zone
Incidence happed at: Kalyani Nagar, opp. Kalyani Veg Restaurant.
Time: 9pm onward
Collection done by: Zonal office
Collection “officer” (so called) from: Hadapsar zonal office
Incidence: I parked vehicle in a "No Parking" area after 9 pm. Immediately within 2-3 mins 2 guys came and locked my vehicle using Jammer.
Said: this is a no parking area and you have to pay fine for this. No Parking board is placed by PMC office so they can collect the fine…
His colleague said, “don’t fight sir we will do settlement”.
I asked for his identity card. He shown me the one (something kind of fake - xerox) his colleague doesn’t have any ID proof. They had a pink slip fine book with them.
I am not sure whether they are allowed to collect money against Traffic Rules and if yes then what are the timings, what is the exact fine?
This guy forcefully collected Rs. 100/- from me to remove jammer and threatened - if not paid then your vehicle will be towed to PMC office.
Fine they are charging:
At the spot: Rs. 500/-
If towed to PMC Premises: Rs. 1500/-
At the spot: Rs. 200/-
If towed: Officer was unable to answer
Settlement Amt.: Rs. 50 – 300/-
Though it is not acceptable, I believe Pune RTO is charging reasonable fine…
Where I should raise a complaint?
PMC should spread awareness using hoardings or advertisement in newspaper, etc.
