    So why are you telling us users?  There is nothing we can do.


    Contact iTunes store support and find out why.

    Apple charges 0.99$ for activating the Apple ID.

    Apple doesn't charge anything for activating an Apple ID. Apple DOES validate a new credit card entered on an account by requesting a Temporary Authorization (also called a "hold") from the issuer in the amount of $1 on the account. This is NOT a charge, and it will not appear on your bill. It will disappear after a few days. Apple (and thousands of other merchants) do this to verify that the card and cardholder information are valid. They need to do this because credit card companies have never created an inquiry type that allows a merchant to simply verify that the account is real. So they have to create a hold (which says to the credit card company "reserve this amount against the card's credit limit, because we may have a future charge in this amount") to verify the account.


    If you travel you will notice that hotels, restaurants, car rental agencies, etc do this also. But the hold that they place is the full expected amount of the charge.


    I'm sure the 60 Rupees are not a charge either; they are a hold. 60 rupees ~= $1.
