Q: What happens if I complete the payment but do not receive a confirmation page?

A: This could happen due to a server connectivity issue. If this happens, you should wait for a day before checking for the confirmation page. If it is still not generated, you should pay the fee again. In the unlikely event that the money gets debited twice, you will receive a refund. If the confirmation page is still not issued, contact your bank or try another payment mode.
