HDFC Platinum DC : Rewards for PayTM recharges / bill payments

According to HDFC, Platinum DC gives rewards for "utility" and most have been using it for paying off other bank CC bills to get 1% CB.

Recently, I paid through this card for a JIO ₹209 recharge through PayTM to avail VISADEBIT ₹30CB offer I was getting, and today saw that 2.09 points were credited as RP. Merchant ID : "ONE97 COMMUNICATIONS L"

So, it detects PayTM recharge payments as utility and gives rewards.

Now, question arises whether other payments through PayTM such as electricity/gas cylinder etc are too (should be) counted for RP? Anyone has an experience or got such RP?

Have you tried CC bill payment via Paytm with Platinum DC and got RP for that?

Idea flashed for me too, not yet done. Will test for ₹100. If merchant id has "CC BILL" in it then drop it.

Do let me know if you do happen to test that and be successful in getting RP.

Doesn't work.  No RPs given

I guess it'd work on >25k bills (office electricity bills etc) which are not allowed by amazon and get 1% flat.

Is there any upper limit for the value of the bill payment?
Yes. Only bill payments of up to the value of Rs. 25,000 are permitted on Amazon (i.e, any order of Rs. 25,000 or above will not be processed). This limit of Rs. 25,000 is applicable across our website to all bill payment related categories, including electricity, gas, piped gas, water, landline, broadband and municipal tax bill payments.
