One response to “Incentivizing payments by citizens of Govt dues upto Rs.1 Lakh reg.”

  1. Saji says:

    Will the Govt. of India come forward and assure its citizens that, it will not allow for a long future to come, the payment companies/card underwriters /bank authorities, etc. to charge any digital transactions. This has to be done through an unambiguous promulgation in the Parliament that anyone who charge the users for digital payment will get suitable punishment. This is required to allay the doubts in the minds of people in the wake of debit cards being charged for holding/payment, once banks forcibly issued them to all and made it popular.
