Frequently Asked Questions – Payments

How secure is the payment process?

All banking transactions are captured in the payment gateway portal which is secured with SSL (HTTPS)

What are important aspects to ensure before making payment?

Please ensure that,

  • You have strong and stable Internet connection
  • Do not shift internet access between Mobile data and Broad band while undertaking payment
  • There is sufficient bank balance in the account you use for payment
  • The daily transaction limit is greater than the fee amount you need to pay (if you are making a card payment)
  • Recommended to make the payment using a PC (desktop or laptop) to minimise errors.
Why might a payment transaction fail?

A payment transaction could fail due to a variety of reasons. These include wrong credentials, wrong password, invalid card/account, insufficient funds, block/hold on the account by the bank, remitter’s bank being unavailable, etc.

Can I retry payment?

Yes. As long as the link is valid, you can retry payment.

Is there a cap or limitation on the payment amount?

Currently, there are no limits. However, the payment service provider could set a limit/cap based on inputs and guidelines of banks/regulators at a later date.

Can I pay using cards / bank accounts / payment instruments issued outside India?

Currently, the payment service only supports cards, bank accounts and payment instruments issued in India.

What should I do if the amount is debited but I am not getting a receipt?

If the amount is debited from your bank please wait for some time. It may take anywhere upto 24 hours for reconciliation between the payment gateway and your Bank. You will get a receipt if the amount is received by the institution after reconciliation. If not, please confirm with the MSSW accounts team, during working hours, before making the next attempt for payment. Contact +91 – 44 – 28195126 / 28194566 (10 AM – 4 PM)

What if I do not have an online password for cards/net banking?

Please get in touch with your bank. Most banks actively promote online payments and will be more than happy to help.

How does the refund process work?

Step 1: Contact your bank for raising a refund request with the relevant reason.

Step 2: Your bank raises a refund request with the payment service provider.

Step 3: The service provider forwards a chargeback request to the merchant for providing acceptable supporting documentation.

Step 4: Depending on validity of the supporting documentation, the chargeback request is declined or confirmed.

Step 5: If a chargeback is confirmed, the amount will be recovered from the institution and your refund will be effected by the bank.

What is a Chargeback?

A chargeback is a request raised by you asking the institution to refund your money due to a variety of reasons including duplicate payment, payment made in error, suspicion of fraud, etc.

When do I get the refund amount into my account?

Depending on your bank and the payment mode used, refunds to your account could take up to a maximum of 10 working days.
