I have an account with the ICICI bank.

Recently, I tried withdrawing Rs 2,500 from an HDFC ATM in Malad (West), Mumbai at night.

After all the process, the network failed and I didn't receive any cash.

I tried again but the result was the same. So I decided not to attempt another transaction.

Subsequently, I received an SMS stating Rs 2,500 has been debited from my account.

I panicked after seeing the message and tried calling the ICICI bank customer care but didn't get through.

I tried once again and this time I got through.

I came to know that the refund of Rs 2,500 has been credited instantly.

I am thankful to ICICI bank for solving  the issue.
