Scam or fraud: Municipal Corporation Of Greater Mumbai — notice u/s 314 of the mcgm act

Submitted by:  Rajesh Mankad

Complaint Details:

I am writing to you as I was unable to find relevant section under “on-line Complaint” under 314 on your web site.

Yesterday, I was shocked to get notice from your office under section 314 of MMC act asking me to furnish documentary evidence to show that my vehicle has been parked as per the permission granted by the MCMG and/or are authorized / protected by any law/ policy in force.

Sir I have been parking my vehicle since 2005 and has never received any intimation from your office asking me to take any permission whatsoever to park my vehicle. As I understand Section 314 of MMC deals with obstruction and my vehicle does not obstruct movement of other vehicles / human beings. Further my vehicle is never parked on footpath.

Sir, I have observed that in spite of more than 20 vehicles parked, mine is the only vehicle for which the notice has been served – seems to be an isolated instance to harass me. And 48 hrs is too short a notice since I am a working professional.

Sir, I would like to bring to your notice that the said notice has been issued to me without sharing any information of permissions of parking to be obtained from MCGM well in advance. I therefore, request you not to take any action without sharing any details and harass a law binding citizen.

Thanking you.
