I’m happy with Rs 50 cash back on recharge of Rs.50. And also when I get surprise cash back of Rs10.
Paytm never offers such cash back option / promo code. But unwillingly for electricity bill I had to go for paytm,


Everyone has their niche I guess. I always use freecharge for mobile/landline bill payments, mobikwik for bus/train booking and paytm for general transactions with kirana shop etc.

Competition is of course good for all.
