In accordance with the RBI guidelines, the customer shall not be liable for the loss if the intimation is made to the bank within three days from the fraudulent transaction. You can be assured that the loss will be paid back to you if you were diligent and have reported the transaction within three days.

Thanks and Regards,

Dear friend, you immediately contact the Ombudsman regarding your complain. You can download the complaint form from the as well. If I am not wrong Banking Ombudsman has office in CP. Also your FIR Will help you to trace to which account it has gone. But do it immediately.

sir yes u can go for legal remedy to recover your hard earned money and the bank as well as that person who credit your said amount will be the party in that case. Here bank must send the OTP (one time password) before completing the transaction.
