What actions can be taken for transfer to the wrong account number

  • If you have transferred the money to the wrong account number and the account holder is from the same bank, you should talk to your manager immediately. They will freeze the account of the receiver and he will not be able to withdraw the money. Then the bank will let him know about the situation and will return your money. This might also take some time depending on your manager.
  • On the other hand, if the beneficiary is from another bank then your manager will talk to that bank and will ask him to stop the transactions of a related bank account. Once they are done with this activity, you can use this formal letter and demand this money.
  • You can also get the information of the wrong beneficiary from the bank and can contact him directly. If the beneficiary is a gentle guy, he will return your money right away. But that is a very rare situation and people are not good enough. So you should talk to your bank directly.
  • Nowadays RBI has guidelines that force bankers to settle these kinds of cases immediately. Bank will help you on an urgent basis if you will mail this letter to the RBI escalation team as well.
  • At last, if the beneficiary has withdrawn the money and used that, it’s gonna take time to get your money back.
