Honda Activa owner pays ₹55,000 for petrol. Know why
The price of fuel is surely running high to give almost everyone the sweats. And amid all these price fluctuations, it is not every day that one hears about a fuel bill mounting up to ₹55,000. Shocking, right? Here's an incident where an owner of a Honda Activa (almost) had to pay this massive amount after he went to refill his two-wheeler in a fuel station in Thane, Maharashtra.
The individual went to a fuel station to get petrol for ₹550, but while paying for the sum online, an error occurred, due to which a sum of ₹55,000 was deducted from his account. According to a Live Hindustan report, the attendant at the fuel station accidentally generated a bar code for ₹55,000 instead of ₹550. Before the matter could escalate, the error was resolved, and the amount was credited back to the two-wheeler owner's account.
These are a few common errors that take place nowadays due to rush network issues where the consumers struggle while paying the amount online if the network or bank server is low.
