    But is service charge itself legal? Why should a customer pay service charge on top of exorbitant rates for the food? Well, if you look at it, you are paying for the food, so the food prices should be inclusive of everything offered – why should a customer pay for them to deliver the food to the table?

    I ate at Chungwa, GK2, Delhi restaurant today on my 10th wedding anniversary. Well we were 12 of us and enjoyed the Soup, Starters, Main Course and Dessert. But when the bill came, I was in for a rude shock. They have put in an amount called Service Charge @ 10% which I outrightly denied to pay. The manager, Mr. Manoj Rajwanshi kept all my questions aside and kept harping that all restaurants charge it. He even mentioned that they pay tax to Govt @ 4.94% on the Service Charge. I tried explaining to him that Service Tax is not on Service Charge + Bill Amount but only on Bill Amount. He did not agree to it. I called Citibank and asked the same question. They agreed that no restaurant can compel me to pay Service Charges and I can ask for a charge back. If the restaurant is unable to prove that the charges are legitimate, they will not be paid and I wont be charged. I thanked Pankaj (Citibank Official) and stated same to the restaurant manager. Well as expected, he did not budge even after going all guns blazing on him. I to end the conversation there, paid the full amount on bill but mentioned that I dispute the Service Chages taken from me on the Service Slip of my card swipe. I will now raise the dispute with Citibank and hope that I get them to agree not charge that amount from me. Lets see!!!!! How fair is judicial system in India.
