Parking fees: Will Railway authorities clarify?

May 8, 2024


I had parked my two-wheeler on Apr. 30 around 6.40 am at the parking area of City Railway Station. On May 1, I returned and took my two-wheeler at around 7.10 am.

The parking staff charged Rs. 60. I said it is Rs. 30 for 24 hours and Rs. 10 for next two hours totalling Rs. 40 as per the fees displayed on the board.

The staff said, after 24 hours, full charge is applicable for next day and showed me the bottom line — written as “Next everyday” and charges mentioned for 12 to 24 hours in each vehicle category.  Also, the staff informed me that previous contract was on hourly basis and now tender is floated on  “everyday” basis.

Most of the vehicle owners paid the amount demanded by the staff.

 I request the Railway authorities to clarify whether the:

1. Tender floated as displayed on the lines of collection “especially after 24 hours”?

2. Which way 24-hour basis is being taken into consideration?
