Comes Wednesday and most banks are expected to begin levying transaction charges on customers. Even as the country marches past the demonetisation era, banks will begin charging for transactions above a certain limit on a monthly basis. Banks like HDFC have started notifying customers on the charges while ICICI and Axis are in the process of deciding transaction limit.HDFC bank has issued a notification that only four cash transaction including deposit and withdrawal will be free and after that, a customer will have to shell out a minimal fee ranging from Rs 5 to Rs 150 depending on the transacted amount. The cap on the transaction has been placed at Rs 2 lakh per month per account. Any transaction beyond Rs 2 lakh will be levied a charge. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has already put a cap of Rs 3 lakh for a cash transaction in the union budget for 2017-18. Banks believe that the charge will discourage people to withdraw cash and help move towards digital payments. Cash crunch continues to be a reality and the move to levy charges hopes to limit usage of liquid cash.
