Daylight robbery by the Railways.

Union minister for Railways
Recently I booked a train ticket for my wife, that was wait listed even after chart preparation. The ticket was automatically cancelled by the IRCTC software / personnel and the refund automatically sent to my bank account. What was appalling however, is that the amount deducted was MORE than fifty percent of the total cost paid!!
How can any provider of goods and/or services charge for goods/services NOT provided in the first place? GST is to be charged only on goods / services provided, otherwise the entire cost is to be refunded and the GST also.
Further, clerical costs / convenience fees (inrtoduced during Minister Suresh Prabhu's time), can never be more than a few percent. In fact, in order to encourage e-transactions, the Government has specifically instructed banks, online cinema ticket providers, etc., not to charge any such fee.
As this is the second time that this has happened to me, I have brought the incident to the notice of this group. Considering the millions of passengers who have wait listed tickets automatically cancelled by IRCTC or by themselves, IRCTC rakes in exorbitant 'moolah' through such blatant violation of the Indian Contract Act, since most passengers do not know of their rights and/or do not have the time to fight or even protest the same.
We need to take this up with the Consumer Protection Forum and also as a Public Interest Litigation.
The Petition was also marked to:
General Manager Southern Railways; Chief Financial and Administrative Officer
Legal officer
