2. Fuel Transactions:

If you spend less than ₹ 15000 per transaction on fuel, no additional fee will be charged. However, if you spend more than ₹ 15000 per transaction on fuel, a 1% fee will be charged on the entire amount and capped at ₹3000 per transaction.

All fees are subject to GST as per government regulations.

"If you redeem your rewards towards statement credit (CashBack), a ₹50 redemption fee will be charged"

So Millennia is now officially worse than Amazon Pay ICICI, Flipkart Axis and their own HDFC Swiggy. And of course SBI Cashback is far superior.
