I have paid 99 /- Rs for an RBI assistant mock test and it says that the transaction have been failed ,but money has been deducted from my account. I have paid through CCavenue /upi. So tell me how i can get my money back

Sujatha Venkat 18th Feb, 2020

Hello  Vikram,

Don't worry if the transaction is failed and money was cut. It will definitely be returned to your bank account with 7 or above working depending on the bank. If you still worry about it,mail or call to your bank service to know the update. If not,if bank is near better visit and clarify your doubt. But definitely money will be returned.

Hope this is useful


i wrote my degree backlog in november2019.but i didnt get the result until now.I have applied for RBI assistant .will i be eligible during certificate verification,after clearing mains

Sonali Sahu Student Expert 27th Mar, 2020


if your back paper is not cleared until certificate verification then you can't join even you pass through all the process of selection. Don't worry keep checking the result publishing site regularly so that you get details fast. Do that atleast once in a day and it won't harm you anyway.

Keep preparing yourself for the whole process.

Hope it helps!
