NEW DELHI: The discount scheme on cashless payment for fuel, announced last week as part of a clutch of incentives to encourage use of electronic payment gateways, will come into effect from Tuesday.
Finance minister Arun Jaitley had on Thursday said state-run fuel retailers will offer a discount of 0.75% to consumers who buy petrol and diesel using debit or credit cards and other digital methods such as mobile wallets and prepaid loyalty cards.
On Monday, the fuel retailers said the discount will be credited to customers' account by way of 'cash-back' within three working days of the transaction. This means customers will first be charged the full amount at the petrol pump when they swipe their card and will get the discount reverted into their account within the next three days.
