BSNL Refund Process – Whom to Contact for Refundable Deposit

How much time does it will take to get BSNL refund of security deposit after surrendering a broadband or landline connection, and Is there any separate application form for refund?

The process minimized now by the operator and issuing refund at a minimum of one month and maximum 90-180 days. Previously, in some of the cases, it will take nearly 6 months to one year. It is all due to the lack of information on customer refund details.

To speed up the refund process, you just have to submit the following details at the time of closure for fast refund of BSNL security deposit with the change process,

Si.No Requirement for BSNL Refund of Security Deposit
1 BSNL Surrender Form for Voluntary Closure
2 Photocopy of Bank account passbook/statement contains the Customer Name, Bank account Number, Name of the Bank, IFSC Code

After submission of request to disconnect BSNL broadband / Landline or any postpaid mobile, the commercial section will issue the orders for the same. Within one week of completion of BSNL disconnection process, the account settlement will process the final refund amount.

After that, the Refund initiation will start by Circle Accounts and credit the deposit amount to the customer directly to bank account submitted. But it is, as per the funds within short time.

  1. Whom will contact if we didn't receive BSNL Refund?

    In every business area / SSA, appointed Accounts Officer / Junior Accounts Officer (JAO) is available for persuasion of refunds, and you may directly approach or call them and inquire about the delay in refunds
    Even if you contact your concerned commercial section in your town/city, then they will contact concerned JAO or AO to know the status of delay for a refund.

  2. Can we get full deposit amount as a refund on disconnecting BSNL broadband?

    No, if you paid the bills clearly and submitted the request to disconnect BSNL broadband connection, then the final bill may raise after adjusting the bill amount for proportionate days up to the closure

    Example:- ISP releases the postpaid broadband bill in every month of the first week. It is by calculating up to the end of the day in the previous month. It means you paid the bill before submitting the BSNL disconnection request for the usage of the last month only. But the unbilled amount up to the closing date may adjust the deposit amount before issuing the refund.

  3. In what cases BSNL refund has been delayed?

    The following are some of the reasons for the delay in BSNL refund

    1. At the time of closure, the subscriber submits the wrong bank details like IFSC code, name and other.

    2. If you submit any other family member details (Bank account details), then there is a delay, So provide the bank details of the customer who have the name in telephone records.

    3. Also, there is a chance, if there is a wrong entry of the bank account details of the customer in BSNL refund entry.

  4. How to rectify wrong entries?

    Submit a written request to concerned BSNL Accounts Officer of the ISP, then he/she will pursue the security deposit case and solve the refund issue.
