Here is some good news right after the very annoying news. the latter is about petrol pumps not accepting the card payments and the former is the counter to latter which states that you’ll be charged zero from January 13, at petrol pumps.
Following the All India Petroleum Dealers Association’s notification on Sunday, which says that the petrol pumps across the country won’t accept debit/credit cards for payments, and only cash is taken. The idea behind the statement given by AIPDA is ‘to protest the banks’ decision to levy an additional charge of up to one per cent on such transactions.
As a bid to tackle this issue, Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said on Monday that there will be no additional charges on digital transactions made at petrol stations.
