Banking Ombudsman

Banking Ombudsman

Did you ever fight with your elder brother during your childhood? Whom did you go for the resolution? Your mother, right. However, we are sure that many times, you would have reached out to your father against the resolution made by your mother. Our families implicitly carry their own mechanisms to address and resolve complaints or grievances.

Given the number and the variety of interactions we engage with banks today, some of us are likely to have complaints or grievances against the services offered by the banks. Though such hierarchy for resolving complaints and disputes comes naturally into our homes, Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has defined such hierarchy for redressal of customers grievances through Banking Ombudsman Scheme, 2006.

According to the said scheme, any person who has a pending complaint against his bank in terms of deficiency of services or in respect of loans taken or not following fair practices etc may file a complaint online with the Banking Ombudsman appointed by RBI to get the issue resolved. RBI has appointed about 20 senior officials as Banking Ombudsman, one in-charge for a one or more states, for assisting you with your complaints.

The guidelines require the complainant to first exhaust the grievance redressal avenues within the bank such as writing to bankโ€™s customer service desk or to the bankโ€™s nodal officer and then only approach the Banking Ombudsman. The complainant may approach Banking Ombudsman in case he has not received any reply within a period of one month of the complaint or the complainant is not satisfied with the reply given by the bank.

While the Banking Ombudsman Scheme 2006 covered almost all types of banks operating in India, the RBI recently announced an Ombudsman setup for NBFCs for helping consumers with complaints against any service deficiencies of large NBFCs.

How About Complaints on Your Credit Report?

You may notice an error in your credit report which may be affecting your credit score as well, and thus your ability to take a loan for your needs. Since CRIF deals with a large amount of data emanating from many banks and other financial institutions and further, in respect of many borrowers, an inadvertent mistake in your credit report cannot be ruled out completely. Read more to understand how credit bureaus work.

Whenever you face such a situation, you may write to us highlighting the discrepancy along with the unique Report ID on the right top corner of your CRIF Credit Report. If you wish to enclose supporting documents, you can write to crifcare@crifhighmark.com. Our customer team ensures that your concerns are heard promptly. Technical issues, if any, are addressed at the earliest and a revised credit report is thereafter issued at no extra cost to you.

In case the issue is with the data provided by the bank to CRIF, we forward the issue to the concerned bank requesting a correction. At the same time, CRIF also requests you to directly take it up with the concerned bank to help expedite the correction. CRIF continues to follow-up with the concerned bank to support you with this correction. As soon as CRIF receives a confirmation for correction, we update our records and share a revised CRIF Credit Report with you.

Even though CRIF strives to offer best standards of customer service, in case you are not satisfied with the response from our customer service desk, you can escalate the matter to CRIF Nodal officer by writing to nodalofficer@crifhighmark.com.

If you do not hear from CRIF or the bank within a reasonable time of 30 working days, you can also approach the Banking Ombudsman for the said discrepancy.
