Manish Chauhan 357 CommentsHave you ever wondered what will happen if you accidently transfer money online to some strangers bank account ? From that date I called so many times to customer care and visited the respective branch but I am not getting any proper answer from them and not knowing that what action is taken from your side. Do you also think that if you transfer money to someone by adding their name, accounts number and IFSC code and if one of those does not match the transaction should fail and you should get back your money in your account. If you mess up with the account number, the transaction can go through you the money will be transferred. As per RBI directions, the final and sole responsibility of cross checking the account number, Name of the account holder, amount and every other detail lies with the remitter (the person who is sending money) and not the beneficiary (who is getting the money) . If the account number does not exist, then surely the money will come back to you, because there is no valid destination to send the money. The first step is to make sure you inform your bank the moment you realise that unintended money transfer has taken from from your end. In some cases, where the other party is greedy (when amounts are quite big) , the other person might not revert back at all or just delay the whole thing and withdraw the money or just don’t take any action . You should then meet the branch manager of your bank, who can go one step further and talk to the destination bank and if they can help in this or in communication with the beneficiary. One important point to note here is that bank cannot reverse the transaction from their side without the customer approval, because its a breach of agreement and is not the right thing. Precaution is better than cure, I personally believe that we are ourself responsible for any money transfer done online. Most of the times, we are typing an account number which we have got in our emails, we look at the number (few digits at times) and then type it in other window when we are adding the beneficiary. If you are transferring a big amount to someone, you can go one step ahead and first transfer Rs 1 and then confirm with the beneficiary if they have got it, and then on confirmation, you can trasfer the full amount. Generally we are programmed to read left to right and we also match the account number that way, truly speaking, it might happen that we sometimes get fooled by our own confidence (4 zero , might look like 5 zero) .. I hope you are clear by now that its your mistake if you transfer money to someone else account and you cant held someone else responsible for your mistake.
I would be happy to know if you benefitted by this article and if there are any real life incidents around this area.
I have received some huge amount in my PPF account from an unknown source that too almost close to a year now, but no one contacted me in this regard. I have transferred 15k to wrong account instead of my MIL by IMPS,Which she required for her medical bills settlement at of the account number digits was wrongly entered.
Also, I am not willing to tel my college by my own as they had looted me for 4 long years and gave this caution money cheque after 7 years. 1 more query….can the credit amount through checque be reverted back without the permission of the beneficiary???
Looking at your query, I think your case is complicated and you should discuss and consult a financial planner, because just a random answer will not help you at all.
Sir while doing online transaction using sbi quick transfer to a syndicate bank account i entered only 13 digits of the account number instead of 14, ie.
No, All account has similar digits, if you mentioned 13 digit, you money will get rejected.

There are thousands of cases where while typing the account number, one last digit got interchanged with another digit and the person did not realise this and their money is then at stake and in most of the cases , they never got it back.

The bank will then contact the beneficiary account holder and try to explain the situation to them.
In which case you really are in a fix and it becomes almost impossible to get back your money. What I personally do is once I have typed the account number (you cant copy paste the account numbers in all the bank website, as its disabled) .

At times, you might come across someone who gives you their account number and you are aware that they are careless by nature, and might have made some mistake while sharing account number, In that case you can take this extreme precautionary step !
