    I was booking a ticket in IRCTC through Net Banking and money was debited but the page after the payment did not go to the IRCTC website, instead it just stopped.

    I checked my email, no new mails. I checked in Booked History, no information there too.

    Will the money come back by itself or i have to contact them?

    Thanks in advance.
