public space and giving them back to dealers after collecting
fines is having no effect on some of them.

parked on public space. Generally, we impound the cars and
give them back after collecting fines. But many of them again

auctioning them, he said.
"They are doing it again and again. There is need for
strict action. How many times can we fine them? We are trying
to make them understand that keeping public space free is
important," Mehra later told reporters.
