We, at pSwitch Services Private Limited (“PSWITCH” or “We”) value all our customers, and we always strive to maintain a sincere and transparent approach during our interactions with all our customers. For the benefit and convenience of our customers, we have set up a grievance redressal mechanism and implemented this grievance policy (“Grievance Policy”). This Grievance Policy aims at resolving customer complaints and grievances by offering a proper redressal channel, review mechanism and ensuring prompt redressal of all customer grievances.
For the purpose of this Grievance Policy, (i) a “Customer” means any user having an account on our mobile/weblink platform; and (ii) a “Grievance” means any concern, dispute, complaint or feedback that a customer desires to provide PSWITCH in relation to the services delivered owing to deficiency in the quality of services rendered or for any other reason whatsoever.
We understand that Grievances could arise under various circumstances. Such Grievances could arise on account of various reasons - from an unavoidable technical snag to a case involving deficiency in the quality of services delivered by PSWITCH. Our customers have complete authority to share feedback / raise a complaint if they are disappointed with the services rendered by PSWITCH. The Customers can highlight or escalate their complaint/ feedback/ suggestions in writing, via email, or chat with our customer support team. If a customer’s issue is not resolved within the given time or if a customer is dissatisfied with the resolution offered/provided by PSWITCH, they may approach our tiered redressal system or proceed to avail any other remedies available to them under applicable laws, which may be determined by the Customer at his/her/its own discretion. In order to make our redressal system more effective and meaningful for our customers, we have established a structured system to resolve complaints seamlessly within the committed timeframe.
PRINCIPLES GOVERNING THIS GRIEVANCE POLICY:
TEAM SENSITIZATION ON HANDLING COMPLAINTS
Our teams undergo regular training to ensure that Customer queries and Grievances are handled with sensitivity. They are guided and encouraged to offer a first-time resolution which in turn leads to consumer trust, confidence and satisfaction. This reflects in both the operations as well as the Customer communications.
OBLIGATIONS OF CUSTOMERS
To ensure a timely and effective grievance redressal process, we request that the Customers fully co-operate with us. Customers are expected to furnish relevant documentation and information for the verification of the complaint and investigation purposes. In certain cases, we may require Customers to furnish additional information. We request that Customers comply with such requests to ensure a smooth and efficient grievance redressal process. In addition, Customers are expected to ensure that such documentation and information is accurate, bona fide, not misleading, and up-to-date. PSWITCH disclaims all responsibilities and liability for non-redressal of Grievances due to false, inaccurate, mala fide, or outdated information or documents that are submitted by Customers.
A ‘Failed Transaction’ is a transaction which has not been fully completed due to any reason not attributable to the Customer such as failure in communication links, time-out of sessions, non-credit to beneficiary’s account due to various causes, etc. Failed Transactions shall also include the credits which could not be affected to the beneficiary account on account of lack of full information or lack of proper information and delay in initiating a reversal transaction.
