The fine for cars is ₹10,000 whereas for autos and two-wheelers it's ₹8000 and ₹5000 respectively. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) along with Mumbai Traffic Police have listed 26 Public Parking Lots and in the view to decrease congestion in these dense traffic areas, BMC had formulated this new rule which was applicable from July 7. 

However, residents from Worli and other parts of the city have strongly condemned this act and protested against it on July 9. Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Sachin Ahir also joined in the protest and claimed that the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) should provide other parking alternatives to the people.
