The newly-introduced Goods and Services Tax (GST) seems to have hit even railway passengers in the Twin Cities hard as the vehicle parking service charges at the Secunderabad Railway Station have been now increased by 18 per cent. Both hourly charges and 24-hour charges for two-wheelers and four-wheelers have been gone up by 18 per cent.

The sudden rise has come as a rude shock to the commuters using the parking service as there was no prior notice. Charges for two-wheelers which was Rs 10 each for the first two hours with additional Rs 5 for every extended hour, has risen to Rs 12 for the first two hours with additional Rs 7 for every extended hour. 

For four-wheelers, the charges rose from Rs 40 to Rs 50 for the first two hours and charge for additional each hour has been raised from Rs 20 to Rs 25. Charges for 24-hour parking for two wheelers rose from Rs 40 each to Rs 50 and four-wheeler rose from Rs 340 each to Rs 400.

As of November 2016, 4 wheeler parking charges are Rs.500/- per day. As Meru cab failed providing me service on time, I drove my car and parked(for 2 days 15 hours) in Secunderabad Railway Station. It is not even 3 days complete, but I paid Rs.1510/- Even my vehicle number is entered wrong and there is no way of verifying it before hand as the swipe card system do not show details(though this system is probably accurate in calculating time)

I parked my bike for 55 mins and asked them to clear the other bike to get out. But no one came within time and i was waiting for 10 mins... and the total time they treated as 1 hr 5 mins and charged 35/- at secundrabad railway station!! The worst behaviour and response from them.... If someone considering all these complaints.. it would be fine, otherwise no use of spending time and commenting here....

@gautham , exactly same thing happened to me and was charged extra, we should be ashamed of this kind of services and there is no use posting our feedback here. Parking should be free by showing the right reason (platform ticket) which should include all these services..I know I'm wasting my time and energy typing all these stuff...it's useless...great going my dear government appreciate it..Atleast in fewthings support normal people.

I think it's the mandatory duty of the Railway administration to provide free parking facilities to their passengers.

The current parking fee is Rs40+ GST, (for 2 hours) which is total of RS 47/-. Firstly, it is quite high for a waiting of about 30 minutes. They must have a slab of Rs20/- per hour My actual grievance is that the parking booth takes Rs50/- instead of Rs47/-. One can see how theyint money for taking a round figure!! Why can't they have a Paytm mode of payment?

Worst and ruthless government, giving contract to private people and they are collecting parking fee higher and higher which impacts middle class men. Sometimes parking fee is greater than railway ticket cost. Govt should take action
