Charging of convenience fee must stop - Consumer Minsitry act pls

Why do services like booking tickets (flights, movies, whatever have you) apply a convenience charge for online transactions? Isn’t the customer making it more convenient for them by not requiring a salesperson, physical space etc? On the contrary they should pass on the savings.

Why is consumer ministry not active on such issues. They must take it up. more

Charging convenience fee on each transaction more  
This pvr is big crook more  
1.When internet and telecom charges are falling why SMS charges every quarter from bank customer
2.If required may be charged on actual no of SMS sent. Charging at equal rate from everybody is not justified.
3. If bank fail to send SMS due to any reason they must pay compensation more  
Is Convenience charge is an approved terminology in IT. more  
Your initiative is a fairly encouraging one, dear Vishal.

Even I cannot understand why an e-transer of funds, which does not involve any manual activity, should be subjected to the so-called "internet charges".

So, I do raise the question once again: Why must "BookMyShow" apply surcharge for e-booking through them ? And why must PVRs apply similar surcharge for booking for a show in their halls ? They do not lift a finger, but reap the benefit of the surcharge.....what for, I ask ? more
