I had spondalitis and was operated in Fortis Hospital in the year 2010. I used to park my car in the hospital premises ( provided space for parking).
Lately, whenever I visit either for follow up or for a check up, now they are charging Rs.20/- to Rs.40/-, even when I am admitted or for a regular check up.
Yesterday 11th May 2013, I had taking my wife ( Mrs Rupa Pillai) to consult Dr Gokhale, we had a appointment at 10 am. Doctor visited the Hospital at 10.45 am, so the Parking charges applicable to me was Rs. 20/- ( as they (security guard) claimed you have crossed 30 mins slab). So my complaint is :
1. Hospitals should not charge parking charges, at least with patients, as such their fees are Rs.750/- for the first time and Rs.500/- for follow up.
2. If Doctors cannot visit on time, why should we bear the extra charges.
