No bank or government organization asks you for the OTP received on your account. Be careful if you get such a call. Do not give your account details and OTP to anyone under any circumstances.
If by mistake you become a victim of cyber fraud, immediately register a complaint by calling 1930, so that the amount deducted from your account can be frozen.
In case of any account related issues, either approach the bank directly or lodge a complaint on their portal by logging in yourself, do not ask anyone else to lodge a complaint on your behalf. Resolve your complaint by calling on the number given on the official website of the bank.
