Usage of Yes Bank PP in India will attract charges of $27 + GST. In India you can access the lounge by swiping Yes First card itself.

@ OP: Check this list of cards for free airport lounge access.

Nice, I didn’t know this. I always thought use of PP on Indian airports will attract charges. When did you access the lounge using PP?

HFDC Infinia’s PP has unlimited access on domestic lounges too.

keep checking your statements. Sometimes the priority pass charge shows up after 2 or 3 months.

HDFC has charged me, Yes does not, in Yes bank there is no condition which mentions you cannot use is domestically. In HDFC tnc they have specifically written around 2 years ago.
Before that HDFC was also free use on domestic

RuPay-Discover/Diners card, International lounge access take some time for refund because refund processed by banks and NPCI will be shared International lounge access utilization with the banks on a quarterly basis.

but if you have RuPay-JCB cards, International lounge access charge only 1 dollar & refundable.

Accordingly, all companies with a turnover of ₹50 crore or more shall be mandated by DoR to provide the facility of payment through RuPay Debit card and UPI QR code to their customers.
