No transaction fee on card payment at petrol pumps: Dharmendra Pradhan

Digital transaction cost to be absorbed by banks \& oil marketing companies

by Dolly Basantani

The minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas, Dharmendra Pradhan, clarified that neither the customers nor petrol pump dealers will bear the additional charges on digital transactions at petrol stations.

In February 2016, the government had issued guidelines stating that the Merchant Discount Rate (MDR) charge will not be passed on to the consumers. These charges will be borne by banks & oil marketing companies.
