  • Sir Maine frieday KO ATM card kiya tha wo log bola ki 48 ghante baad tumhre mobile pe msg jaega otp no avi tak nahi aYa Q

    • Hi Manikesh, I think because of technical issues you haven’t received the OTP yet this can be the first reason. And the other reason can be that you have entered or mentioned wrong mobile number in the account opening form.

      So I recommend you to talk to the customer care center right away, you can call them on their toll free number 1800 180 2222

      And tell them that you haven’t received your OTP yet, they will assist you with it.
