State bank of india refunds defrauded amount through rti punch

Recommended Posts

Exactly one year ago, an amount of Rs.18500/- was withdrawn from ATM of State Bank of Mysore [sBM] at Belapur near Mumbai, while my friend was having his SBI [state bank of India] ATM card at Junagadh [nearly 700 kms away]. He got SMS for debit. A complaint and claim was lodged with branch of SBI at Junagadh. In addition RTI was filed with SBM for CCTV footage which they supplied through SBI along with reports generated by ATM system.SBI first treated this as ATM failed transaction [where account is debited and no money dispensed by ATM] and declared that their system shows that transaction was successful. We insisted that this is a case of fraud of card cloning and skimming of PIN. SBI accepted it later on. We supported our claim with information received under RTI Act from SBM and also SBI. In August 2014 SBI agreed to reimburse amount but processing and sanction of claim was inordinately delayed at LHO Ahmedabad. Again RTIs were filed to dig out status and manual extract for ATMs etc. Based on this we lodged detailed complaint to Corporate Center at Mumbai. It did not work for a month and hence on 13-04-2015 email was sent to CMD of SBI with relevant details. On 17-04-2015 bank refunded the amount. As per SBI manual, such claims should have been settled in 33 days from date of complaint but was delayed for one year!!! However, we shall be claiming compensation, interest and expenses shortly through administrative channel as per compensation policy of banks and ensure that accountability for unexplained delay is fixed on officers.In last one year 7 RTI applications and 3 first appeals were filed with SBM and SBI.Right from branch head to AGM Junagadh to GM/CGM LHO Ahmedabad, DGM Corporate Center Mumbai and ultimately CMD had to be sensitized for such a small claim. I do not know what this bank will do with poor illiterate villagers when they will use ATMs under Jan Dhan Yojana of Hon’ble Prime Minister. We shall be submitting details of this case to PMO to ensure that villagers are not harassed by banks at least under PMJDY.17-04-2015

At a time when banks are refusing to even listen to such kinds of happenings, this is a definite achievement.

Let us all remember the services of Hon.Late Sharad Phadke who was the guiding spirit against all ATM related transactions and till death he was fighting against ATM frauds and filed cases against Bank officials and against Police also.

 

In these kinds of issues, perseverance and knowledge are most essential. But for constant follow up, one can not recover single rupee from any Bank and it is the constant endeavor of Hon JPS, that depositor received the amount even after one year. Unfortunately, there are several less privileged that are not aware of these frauds, and silently suffer and not intending to proceed against Bank and other hurdles for their own fears.

Hon JPS, kindly create a Blog explaining step by step and a chart showing the way to find out such ATM frauds and remedies.

      Hello,
      I require help on co-operative issue. I had filed the RTI with the PIO, Dy registrar of co-op societies seeking information on affairs of society.
      The PIO has replied stating that the information I am seeking is available with co-operative society. My query is:
      1] Can PIO direct an applicant to private body for information?
      2] The society in question comes under the jurisdiction of the PIO, since PIO is public authority and co-operative society a private body, is it not duty of PIO to seek information from society and give it to me? How can PIO direct me back to society? This is RTI application, either I have to appeal or I have to forego. I cannot complaint against reply. So I want to approach FAA, under what grounds can I?
      3] What kind of violation PIO has committed by directing me back to private society? 
      4] Does co-operative society come under the purview of RTI ACt?
      Your views are appreciated. I am fighting lone battle with corrupt system.

      Can the General Diary of the police station where particulars of "All the details in r/o criminals arrested and entry of arrival/departure of all enrolled police officers on duty with nature of their duties, duty performed and places visited etc."   are maintained be inspected and photo copies sought from a particular police station under RTI?
      Is there any particular clause/section that needs to be quoted for inspection under RTI? Any format available for inspection under RTI?
