This is to lodge a complaint against ICICI Bank Credit Card Department who has illegally put the amount in my savings account on lien for credit card outstanding. There was absolutely no communication (via email, phone call and hard copy letter).
Due to this I have cheque bounces on my account. When I enquired about this they talked very arrongantly and said that they have authority to do whatever they want on our savings bank. When I have asked for a settlement on my card they told I have to pay an amount of 55,000 for an outstanding of 68,000. My account was blocked on 26th March and they gave the reason that since it was the financial year ending they have done this to show the amount in their ledger balance.
I was not at all contacted either by Credit Card Dept or Recovery Dept. Now they are telling that they'll not remove the blocking until unless I pay the total outstanding. ICICI Bank Savings Account is my salary account and it is connected for ECS for my personal Loan Accounts. Because of this all my cheques are bouncing.
particularly look for answers to the following queries from my side:
1. Why wasn't I contacted about details regarding the case, during the case investigations at all?
2. Why was I not informed about the one sided decision taken by the bank?

How can credit card department put amount from my saving account on lien for recovery without informing me/ my authorization?
I would like to lodge a case against ICICI Bank. Also, please remove the lien on my saving's account at the earliest.
I request you to please contact ICICI bank and remove lien on my savings account.
Looking forward to an early and favorable action from your side.
Kindly provide us your full contact details.
i want know that can a bank put lien on my saving account for default payment of credit card , i had stopped payment due to dispute in billing .
can i file a case in consumer court for this act of bank, if yes pls send me a copy of complaint format .
Sorry to inform you, but Bank has the right to recover his money. For such kinds of complaints we can't challange any Bank in Consumer Forums.
1) Can the banks do this even if they themselves have said that the salary account and loan account are not linked? 2) Also, when I requested Citibank to take my personal loan amount from my suvidha account since I didn't have the time to pay them in cash, they said it is not possible. I've made calls about this to their customer care center.
3) This same citibank has taken the amount from my account in the past and suddenly, when I told them to take it this time, they said that the RBI has passed a notice whereby they cannot use my salary account to make payments henceforth. But, suddenly one day kaboom, they did seize my salary account when least expected.
I'm totally confused and do not understand what is right and what is not. 4) I've asked for a document from the bank stating they can take this amount, because all the documents I have do not have this information, but the bank plainly refuses to respond to this request of mine.
5) Also, I have complained to them about a court notice I received and noone at the customer service department even knew about that letter.
6) Worst thing was that I used to receive calls for my payment, but when I called the customer service department, they did not have my cell number updated. This all is scary. I don't know who called me then.
7) The customer service once told me to make the payment online and when I tried that too, my account number was not going through.
8) Citibank gave me the number of an officer to talk to about my payments. He suggested a settlement and then while we were talking to him about Rs. 35,000, nearly double the amount was taken away from my account.
I'm sure there must be some way out of all this!!! Can the banks really seize your salary account especially, when you've already been complaining about things?
did this got solved for you?
The same is the issue with me from ICICI bank.

do the needfull consulting the AXIS BANK ATM on that date.14.12.2010, amount left with in the ATM machine,

A bank is taking shelter on the rules and conditions which are blind to the naked eye and illegible to read and understand. I am informed that such terms and conditions illegible to read have no legal force. I may be thrown light on this aspect, if there is a judgement of Supreme court to that effect, pleas inform me the details at email@example.com.
