Illegality of Convenience fee

I agree that convenience fee is not acceptable. Incidentally, there is a court case I think in Punjab where the convenience fee charged by PVR has been questioned. To say that there is an infrastructure required, isn't the merchant also saving on manpower required to handle physical payment. No one should defend the indefensible. more

It is demand supply law. When there is demand, the sellers en-cash. When there was only Indian airlines there was demand for subsidized tickets. Now air routs opened to private operators. No subsidy from private operators, they charge some thing extra. we are paying extra to them . And air India is being sold for making loses.
Onions were in demand, the rates were high because they know we can not stop using onions even for few days. Though it was perishable it made profit to traders who stocked. more  
i agree that it should not be there. it was first started by the government only. When we all know that there is no unreserved accommodation in trains like rajdhani and shatabdi and they have a different fare structure, then why there are superfast charges and reservation charges. initially, they were not there but added later on as a backdoor way of increasing fare. same is with airlines like Indigo on ticket booking --- show less price and then charge 200 rupees as convenience fees. But then, in past there were shopping malls where they demanded entry fees and it was adjusted in the items purchased. Let the courts decide its legality. local circles have very little role in this. more

'BookMyShow' is charging the fee so are most of flight & hotel booking sites. What need be done in such cases? more  
Next stage is to charge convenience fee even if you have just stepped inside the premises of any bank, post office, etc., with the logic that money is required to sweep the premises and make periodical repairs. more
