In case you do not get a resolution within 30 days from the respective entity including its internal ombudsman or you are not satisfied with the resolution provided by them you can escalate your complaint to the integrated Ombudsman under the new scheme.

On November 12, 2021, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Integrated Ombudsman Scheme. Thanks to the Integrated Ombudsman Scheme, consumers who have complaints against a Reserve Bank of India (RBI) regulated entity (like a bank or NBFC) now have a single point of reference to file complaints, submit documents, track the status of complaints and receive feedback.

Here is a look at how you can file a complaint under the RBI’s One Nation, One Ombudsman scheme.

When to take the One Nation One Ombudsman route
This is a scheme for escalation of your complaint and not the fist point of complaint. If you have any grievances against RBI-regulated financial institutions such as banks, NBFCs or a payment service operator you first need to make a formal complaint with that institution itself.

The RBI has also made it necessary for all these institutions to have an internal ombudsman. In case you find it difficult to file a complaint with the financial institution regulated by the RBI you can also approach its internal ombudsman.

In case you do not get a resolution within 30 days from the respective entity including its internal ombudsman or you are not satisfied with the resolution provided by them you can escalate your complaint to the integrated Ombudsman under the new scheme.
