JAMMU: Acting on the complaint of attendants of patients for being overcharged for parking their vehicles in the premises of Government Medical Jammu, the Department of Legal Metrology booked contractor under relevant provisions for collecting extra money from public for parking cars/ two wheelers.
According to Controller Legal Metrology, the hospital authorities have fixed nominal parking fee of Rs 5 for two wheelers and Rs 10 for cars for two hours. During inspection, the team of Legal Metrology and police found the employees of the contractor fleecing public by charging excess amount to the tune of Rs 30 for cars and Rs 10 to 15 for two wheelers. The slips being issued to public for availing services were also plain without any mention of amount being charged.
The Deputy Controller Enforcement imposed a fine of Rs 25,000 and recovered from the defaulters with the warning to contractor that any such malpractice in future will be dealt severely. The team also ensured that all rates as fixed by the authorities are displayed at the premises.
