The bank might keep your account frozen until they complete an investigation from their side as to what actually happened here and how to avoid this in this future. As there is no actual monetary loss in your case, it might take sooner rather than later. Just keep calling your bank every 4 days or so, and ask them when you will get your account back. Also, request them to provide you a new Debit Card in the mean time, so that you could access your money until your account is unfrozen. They most probably will help you out with that.Thanks a lot bro for your advice! I read somewhere that the bank issues a new debit card once they'll unfreeze the account is that true? And would it be a good option if I change the current registered mobile no. so that I've no link with the old no. whatsoever?
And Yeah. Changing the Registered Mobile Number is probably a good idea. But only if you have already have another number that you can use from your dual sim phone. I don't think you would want to get a new number (in place of your old number) just for this purpose. You would then have to give that new number to all the contacts in your phone. That would be a waste of your time and energy.
I guess, as long as your bank changes your UPI Id and issues you a new Debit Card, you should be good to go. Anyway, convey this concern to your bank contact when you go there. They would be in a better position than me to give you the right advice on this. Most probably, they might say it doesn't matter.
Whatever they say, please let us all know the list of things you end up changing. It would be a guide for the rest of us
