There can be seen many queries where account holders have done transactions on UPI. In the present scenario, it is showing failed, however, the money gets debited from the account. SBI says

We suggest you to mail the details (amount, 12 digit txn ref no. and date of txn) to support.upi@sbi.co.in, our Bank’s dedicated UPI help mail id.

In the past, there have been frequent cases of SBI UPI server breakdowns. It was stipulated that SBI transactions were getting queued at NPCI’s end. This led to a massive choke or lag. The drain on hardware resources led NPCI to take the drastic step of shutting down SBI’s node until stability was reached.

Crazy about technology, sports, cinema, my colleagues, and useless anecdotes. Far too connected and curious. When I'm not on my smartphone, you can find me tinkering anything tech!
