Bang, double charges!!!

I just hate to call the bank and followup on those stupid double charges. Earlier, it was with a petrol pump near my house, the guy swiped by card twice and I was charged 1000 bucks instead of Rs. 500.

And now, yesterday, a shop in Vadodara, (btw, I will be in Gujarat and Kutch till 8th of Dec) the guy did not get success in the first time, I told him that charging 2nd time would deduct the amount again from my account but he confirmed that it won’t happen again… but to my bad luck, it did happen again.. bloody Rs. 3170 charged twice in my account…

Now again same old procedure, call up bank, send them the copy of the slip, they will take 45 days to fix this issue up. It sucks.. why can’t these guys make process faster..

21st century and 45 days..


  1. Not the same in other western countries, happen more so in India. Its what the damn British left behind that is hindering 21st century growth i.e. bureaucracy at its finest!

    > the brains, technology and manpower to make this happen is all there, minus some infrastructure.

  2. everybody suffers. hope we see altogether different india one day. its good they dont charge any service charge etc etc for this refund stuff, lol :p hope u get ’em all soon. my smpathies.

  3. Voila! You are in Vadodara!!!! Means that I should expect a raid well on 6th December!!!! I am sure this time you are in two pieces. See you at B-5, Univesity Staff Colony, Vallabh Vidyanagar. What happened to the night halt planning?

  4. Not only in India! When I shop in Indian website from UK! I have been charged twice for one order.. how silly! And two transaction fee.. nothing to do with Bank but the the website 🙁 !!!

    Sad to hear this Deeep! These people are worse than PayPal! LoLS!!!

  5. It happens to all and is really painful. For me it happened last month when i booked tickets online. I was charged Rs 990 twice. Then i informed them, and now it’s almost a month, and still waiting.
