Done.
With reference to my post (link /blog/post/2960344 )I am posting FAQs about Bank Charges while purchasing Tickets by Debit/Credit Cards at PRS counters.
1)How much charges will I be charged by the Railways or the Banks if I book by DEBIT Cards at PRS Counter?
A:Railways waived off the INR 30 which they charged for Card Purchase at counters w.e.f 01/06/2016 so Railways won't charge you anything.As far as Banks are concerned if the card is a RuPay Debit card of any bank there is NO Charges at all.For Visa/MasterCard/Maestro Debit

cards majority of Banks including SBI/ICICI/IDBI/AXIS/UBI 'DO NOT' charge any fee.1 or 2 banks levy 0.9% to 1% of the amount.You may contact your bank for the same.
2)How much is charged for bookings through CREDIT Cards at PRS counters?
A:A charge of 1.5%+GST of 18% over 1.5%(Total is 1.77%) is charged for booking at PRS counters by Credit Cards.
3)What are the benefits of booking tickets by Debit or Credit Cards at PRS locations?
A:Problem of Change for Cash transaction is solved.If ATM withdrawal limit has exceeded than free transaction offered one can book by Debit card.He/She saves around INR 20 of withdrawal charges as Debit Card charges are ZERO for most banks at PRS counters.
4)Are there any advantages Paying by Card at PRS than booking online?
A:Booking Online tickets by Debit Card of any bank attracts a nominal charge of 0.25% to 1% of the amount.Whereas through PRS charges for Maximum Debit Card are NIL.Booking by Credit Card attracts a charge of 1.65% to 1.9% +18% GST on the Service Charge whereas at PRS it is Flat 1.77% .Some bank do not charge for Credit Card as well.
5) For Cancellation procedure and Refund Process and Refund timelines you can refer to the blog whose link is given above.
Note:Booking through Card at PRS is best when one is confirm to travel on a particular date as Modification is not permitted in these tickets.As of now only Cancellation is allowed.Booking through Card takes a bit longer as RRN No etc details are to be fed into the system for Refund purpose which will be printed on the ticket so it is best when you have time to buy your ticket and is not an emergency ticket which gets over within seconds.

    @all: This is to formally announce the END of the RailCal app. Due to the information blockade, the app has lost its value, and has been rendered completely useless. We are unable to support RailCal anymore. Sorry to disappoint our users. . RailCal has already been taken off the Google PlayStore. So once...

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

    @all: The PNR Forum as we know it is OVER. The official website has unilaterally decided to thoroughly block and shut down all access to PNR info.

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
