The debit/credit card banking details provided by you for use of the Payment Gateway/ Internet Banking will be correct and accurate and you shall not use a Debit/credit card / Net Banking which is not lawfully owned by you. You further agree and undertake to provide correct and valid debit/credit card Banking details.
In default of the above conditions, the Ministry of Finance shall be entitled to recover the number of transactions from the consumer against whose bill the credit/debit card/Net banking has been used.
