Why does Skype charge local taxes in India?
When you purchase Skype products in India, your payments are processed using the Sify payment gateway. These payments will have local taxes applied to them as required by law.
If you have a stored payment method on your Skype account that you have used for previous purchases, you can continue to use it to buy Skype products as before with no local taxes applied.
Whether you've purchased something previously, or paid through the Sify payment gateway, no worries – both are still valid.
