The next time you swipe your card at the toll booth, make sure you double check the amount entered by the attendant, as silly human errors can cause you plenty of trouble. In one such incident, a toll booth attendant entered Rs 4 lakh instead of Rs 40 while swiping the debit card of a doctor in Karnataka. The incident occurred at the Gundmi toll gate on the Kochi-Mumbai National Highway near Udupi around 10.30pm on Saturday. The doctor, identified as Mr. Rao, was travelling to Mumbai in his chauffeur-driven car. After he gave his debit card at the toll booth, he received a SMS, in which, it was mentioned that Rs 4 lakh has been debited from his account.
The doctor was shocked after reading the message, and he immediately informed the toll booth attendant and other staff members. However, the toll booth staff refused to hear his requests. They were not even ready to accept that the attendant had made such a big mistake while swiping the card. The doctor then travelled further to Kota, where he filed a complaint with the police. Only after the police arrived, the toll booth staff agreed to refund the excess money charged to the doctor. The doctor demanded the money in cash, which was later provided to the doctor after consulting with senior officials of the collections company.
