    Hi All,

    I have enrolled for the above pension policy in the month of June 2015. But till September 2015 Bank didn’t deduct the EMI amount (990 Rs). So I thought it was not processed. But my bad luck, I didn’t have sufficient amount in my account and the EMI was produced and it bounced back. October 2015 the EMI was produced again and it was deducted with 1010 Rs with Penalty. Now my question is will they deduct the balance EMI (from June to October) or only one month (starting October). Whom to contact for more information. Bank don’t have any answer. Any Idea?
