Transaction charge even on payment through e-wallet
For booking tickets through net banking of most banks, Rs 10 plus tax is charged on each transaction. Similarly, a transaction charge and tax of 1.8 per cent is levied on payment of tickets through payment gateways and credit cards.
If you pay through e-wallet, then this amount is payable separately according to the e-wallet company. Like Amazon, Paytm, these companies also charge separately on each transaction.
What was the rule before?
According to the IRCTC website, earlier transaction charges were levied on debit cards of PNB, Indian Bank, Union Bank of India, Andhra Bank and Central Bank of India.
At the same time, this charge was not levied on payment by debit card of some banks. But later IRCTC terminated the transaction on Rupay debit card.
