The amount collected is not reach the govt treasury directly. For parking collection few contractors take the contract for one year by beating. In competation it go highest value. Based on this parking charges is arrived and collecting from our hardly earned money.

I don't think the Municipal Corporation would itself be collecting the parking fees. What they usually do is to call for tenders - with a reserve price and the contractor who bids the highest amount gets the contract to collect the parking fees. He takes the contract at an agreed amount. He is liable to pay that much to the Corporation for the contracted period. He in turn earns a lot more than he bid - as usually the Corporation does not meddle in the affairs of the Contractors.
