What is local area committee? Are they giving receipts for the alleged fee collected?

Yes Sir, it is a local community committee (not municipal body), they are giving receipt every month. One thing Sir I want to know, is there any permission required to charge parking fee in municipal road? Please answer me Sir.

Who can clarify your doubt?

Only Municipality.

In some states, the parking areas are auctioned for a specific amount per annum, and they also prescribe fees to be charged.

If it is authorized, you will get confirmation from such Municipality.   If it is unauthorized, they have to leap into action and curb the menace.

Even in suburb Railway stations, some unsocial elements occupied Railway places, and openly collecting such amount  There was a hue and cry and several complaints.  I am not aware as to what happened, after such confirmation from Railways that it is unauthorized, and after booking such complaint to Railway authorities.  Because MAFIA is involved, no one dared to make a complaint initially.  It is a good samaritan and senior citizen from PUNE who has taken the issue and brought a logical end that such collection is illegal.  Unfortunately, he has expired after making a risky fight on a public issue.

Did you raise any objection to such charges ? Ask the committee regrading authorisation for such charges.

It would be better to contact and consult a local prudent lawyer for appreciation of facts/ documents, professional advise and necessary proceeding.
