The fines will be up to ₹15,000, which including towing charges, for parking within 500-meter radius of 26 authorized public parking lots and will range from ₹5,000 for two-wheelers to ₹15,000 for heavy vehicles.
With a penalty for late payment, it could go up to as much as ₹23,250, a BMC official told PTI Saturday.
For effective implementation of the scheme, the administration has hired ex-servicemen to assist traffic police.
People on Twitter have been slamming this decision of Asia's richest municipal corporation.
