The “Internet Handling Fee”, online movie booking platforms like BookMyShow and PVR charge is not legal at all. An RTI has recently revealed that any online movie booking platform that is charging you Internet Handling Fee is illegal and against the RBI regulations.

In a reply to the RTI filed by Vijay Gopal, the president of ‘Forum Against Corruption’, RBI replied that the said fees is supposed to be paid by the merchant and not end customers.

As per the RBI rules, every merchant has to pay Merchant Discount Rate (MDR) to banks when they accept payments online. However, the merchants are paying it to banks by charging customers which is unethical.
