Absolutely correct. You have mentioned the case who purchase small amount. What about bulk purchasers? For example: bus owners, taxi owners? Will they deposit the earned cash in the bank, then pay 10% (or more) tax to avail the benefit of 0.75% for electronic transaction? I think Government is confused. Govt. should rather restrict cash transactions completely for bulk purchase.

I filled up my tank today with debit card and a transaction charge was deducted by my bank. Not sure how and when this 0.75% will be returned. No changes so far.

This will have to be implemented strongly at the source. I see a problem if this is left to the pump attendants to punch in the 0.75% discount everytime a card swipe is done. They might not do it all the time, and not all consumers might be aware of this discount being doled out. This should be taken care of at the source, so would be interesting to see how they implement it.

Overall, I get about 4-5% cashback for fuel. With 0.75% more, that's going to be more beneficial, but it remains to be seen how this discount scheme is implemented.

Exactly. I too have been using Citibank Indian Oil card since ages and every year earn around 6K rupees worth fuel free as points earned. Now with this .75% cashback, it even more sweeter deal to have these CC. I am shocked to see that there are still people who do not use these cards. High time we start doing it now.

While it's understandable that making it applicable for all the services would have given way to several loopholes for evading tax, the government should have picked few sectors dealing mostly in cash.

There seems to be no clarity on how exactly this .75% discount is applied for fuel purchases. Just filled up today and the pump attendant flatly refused to acknowledge any sort of discount.

I filled up on Saturday 10th December from an IndianOil pump in Rajarhat New town. Paid via HDFC bank CC. Online statement suggests that I was first charged the cost+surcharge+service tax on the surcharge, and then was refunded the surcharge by my bank (which has always been the case).
No discount of 0.75% anywhere.
And the pump attendants were clueless about any discount.

My IOC Citibank credit card rewards me with free fuel with turbo points accumulated! I've been using only cards for fuel for more than a decade! This 0.75% would be a welcome addition and would keep the penny pinching miser in you smiling!

The private players certainly won't be happy with this move. If I had to use my card , I would avoid using them at Reliance , Shell etc. as I would not get the 0.75% discount. Reliance/Shell now have to cut down their margins to stay competitive . This affects private investment and employment in the sector.

To be fair , the government should've extended the subsidy to private players and recompensed them. In it's present form , this subsidy clearly distorts the market.

The discount will start from midnight tonight and would be by way of cash back which will be credited to the buyer's account in three days from the transaction, said Indian oil Corp, the nation's largest fuel retailer.

The 0.75 per cent discount on payments made using either credit/debit cards, e-wallets or mobile wallets will translate into a rebate of 49 paisa a litre on petrol and 41 paisa on diesel.

Here is the latest on how cashback / discount is implemented.

http://www.financialexpress.com/econ...scount/472491/

"Customers making digital payment for purchase of petrol and diesel will get a discount of 0.75 percent on the sale price of fuel from today. In a statement, the Indian Oil Corporation has said the amount of discount will be credited to customers account by way of cash back within maximum three working days of the transaction."

Excellent move in my opinion because NOTHING works better in India than a MONETARY incentive. I have an approximate annual fuel spend of around 150k exclusively using credit/loyalty cards and the cashback will come to 11k!

I foresee a major take-up of cashless (credit/debit/prepaid loyalty/wallet) transactions at state retailers. However, GoI should extend to private players too in the interest of fairness.

0.75% of 150 k comes to around 1K cashback - maybe the 11K was a typo in your post ?

I also believe the discount is a temporary measure. It's a matter of time before it's pulled back.
