    Hi Good morning,
    Last night (5th December 2022) at around 23:20 I came to see off my wife (in Red color KIA Cerato) who was flying to Chennai by INDIGO.

    When I exited from the Short Term Parking within 15 minutes, another client had some issue with the Parking ticket and the traffic was held up. Once the matter with other passenger was partially resolved, I proceeded to present my Parking Ticket to exit; however, the Barrier was opened even before I could present my Parking Ticket and the Parking lot person asked me to exit quickly without punching the Parking Ticket.
    Though I had exited I was still concerned and thus turned back and entered again the Short Term Parking Lot with another Parking Ticket and went straight to the same Exit and requested the attendant to please punch my Parking tickets out so that I will complete my formality correctly.
    Again, the attendant took both the Parking Tickets and asked me to exit without punching the 2 cards saying that it is no problem please leave.
    Again, the fact that I had not punched out my tickets was bothering me and thus again I returned back to the same Parking Lot and again went to the same exit to explain my concern and to please formalize the punching out.
    Once again, the attendant took my 3rd parking ticket as well and asked me to exit saying that this was no problem at all.
    This narrative is to seek the comfort from HIA Authority that I am not at fault – a simple email reply from you to this mail confirming that no action further action is needed from my end will settle my anxiety.
    Thanking you in anticipation.
