What are PRCR charges?
PRCR is not a kind of full-fledged service just like any SMS alert or a ATM service but to show the mode of transaction in the statement.
So, there’s no kind of charge that is charged for it. But the full amount that is deducted or credited is shown using PRCR in the statement.
What to do if my statement showing PRCR with the amount is deducted without my concern ?
First to note, if the transaction is made without your concern first contact your bank using their customer care number or visit the bank immediately. Next to avoid any further deduction block the card.
Such transactions might be dangerous and can have been made to purchase illegal arms and items.
If you are more concerned and it’s actually worth it if anything goes wrong like –
- Filing FIR.
- Complaining to the Cyber police if any amount is deducted.
Immediate or within 3 days complaint can increase the chance of getting the money back. Because as said by RBI, if a fraud transaction is performed by a third party or a double deduction by banks such as for the EMI or payment, the bank is liable to refund the money back to the customer’s account.
Note: In this case, you can also only disable the international transaction option to safeguard the account.
