Money transferred to wrong bank account!

In recent times, UPI transactions have greatly simplified money transactions.

If you accidentally sent money to the wrong bank account, you can request reimbursement from your bank.

Wrong Transaction:

However, a transaction can only be reversed if the person who got the money gives permission for the transaction’s reversal.

Steps to be taken in wrong transaction

Make a call to the bank's customer care support to report unintended transactions. Note the transaction's date, time, and account number.


Visit Bank


Visit your home branch and inform them about the wrong transaction. Submit your application for the transaction you made.


Ask your bank to tell you the name and address of the recipient bank account.

Once you have the name and branch of the recipient, try to contact the beneficiary and make a request for the amount retransfer.

Request for Re-transfer


Reserve Bank of India (RBI) says that it is the sender's responsibility to make sure the account number is correct.

Check twice before make any transactions.
