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
