Government limits debit card fee on bills of Rs. 2,000 at 0.4% for the first quarter of 2018

The government on Thursday decided to limit the fees that banks receive on debit cards on transactions below Rs. 2,000/- to 0.40 percent which is against the 0.90 percent set by the RBI earlier for the first quarter of 2018. The government notified that it will support the Merchant Discount Rate (MDR) applied on shopkeepers by banks on debit card charges on transactions less than or equal to Rs. 2,000/-. The MDR on such transactions will finally become zero for the merchant and hence, they will become at par with cash transactions. The finance ministry explained lowering of fees for banks which was recommended by a panel looking into reimbursement of MDR. The issue on who will bear the charges on debit card transactions has seen several twists and turns. While the government had announced a complete waiver during demonetization, the RBI had subsequently introduced a system where the charges were lower for low-value transactions and not a complete waive-off. Also, banks have been told not to have a 'bundled' charge for debit cards and credit cards. Since, most of the debit transactions are below Rs 2,000, banks will end up receiving only 0.4 per cent MDR on most debit card transactions. However, on transactions above Rs 2,000, MDR would be applicable on the full transaction value. Following opposition from banks, this was replaced with a system where merchants with turnover of over Rs 20 lakh a year would pay 0.9 per cent and smaller merchants would pay 0.4 per cent. Even as merchants were opposing this saying that 0.9 per cent was too high, the government stepped in and said that it would bear all MDR on debit cards for two years. A similar move to reduce charges on credit cards would also be welcomed. More efforts and user friendly moves would curb cash transactions to greater extent and help build India into a cashless economy. Solve your Credit card & Loan Problems Call @ 9962999008.

Ways to escape from Credit card Debt - 9962999008

If there are so many dangerous routes to becoming free of credit card debt (and indebted elsewhere), what represents the golden path? The answer doesn't involve a quick fix, but will provide a safer, long-lasting solution. The first step requires a change of behavior. "The main obstacle is changing your spending habits," Freeman says. "By simply doing that, you will be able to reduce expenses and pay off your debt." Her advice: Don't open any new accounts. Reduce expenses by bringing your lunch to work, taking public transportation, shopping at wholesale stores, etc. Don't transfer balances unless you can pay the full balance before the promotional period expires. Budget, budget, budget. "Create a spending plan to determine the total amount you owe and your total monthly income to see where you can reduce expenses," Freeman suggests. She also says to focus on paying your bills on time and alerting your creditors immediately if you will not be able to pay your bills when they are due. If need be, cut up all of your credit cards except for one to use for emergencies -- and keep that one safely tucked away to reduce splurge temptation. Once this financial bleeding has been stanched it's time to go to work on whittling down that debt. Finding a good 0 percent APR balance transfer credit card is often a good next step. Think of this credit card as a debt consolidation loan; don't carry it in your wallet. It's simply a place to park your debt at no interest in order to begin cutting it down. Attaining freedom from debt at this point is a matter of using your newly budgeted income to pay it off bit by bit until it is gone.It takes time and self-discipline to destroy debt, but once you are free of its shackles, you will lift an enormous weight off your back.

“Psycho-terrorism” word aptly used to the illegal recovery methods, adopted by the Financial Institutions. Though the RBI, BCSBI, and IBA are issuing guidelines, none of the Financial Institutions are following these guidelines. Large number of specific reports are available through out the country in the Media &Press, apart from our representation to the Government and RBI. Even though the BCSBI has issued Code of Conduct for the recovery of dues and repossession of securities. The Financial Institutions hardly follow the Codes and guidelines. As an Association we cannot go on filing cases against each and every wrong. Then we have to file at least 100 cases a day. As a Voluntary Association, it is impossible. We have come across Financial Institutions spending huge money towards legal expenses by using the public money by making appeals after appeals against the customers. The guidelines are there only on paper and the Financial Institutions undertaking to follow the guidelines in writing but in practice they are thrown to the winds. As we failed to get response from the controlling authorities, as a final step, we have asked all our members to apply “Newton’s 3rd Law” i.e. For every action, there is equal and opposite reaction. There is no need to explain the method used by the Financial Institutions. It is in the interest of all, firm action needs to be taken against the erring Financial Institutions. Otherwise, there will be only street fights. Writer : K.P.Satish kumar M.L. Advocate & Legal Consultant For all your complaints call 24 hrs Helpline:- 9962999008.
