Previously BIA(HSMP) returned my form saying, there was an error in payment(transaction declined). I had given my ICICI bank debit card details. I reapplied using ICICI credit card.

I had given ICICI credit card details and it worked for me. I dont know about Debit card. May be your Debit card is not valid outside India or something like that.

Hi Shan

Credit cards give some trouble. So I would suggest you to go to a bank and get the DD made for 400 GBP. I got it from HDFC bank...they will charge around 250 rupees and give same day. As it is safer and it works ...just takes couple of day to clear i.e. 3-5 working days.

Credit card gave me the same problem...so I feel DD is better option. Good luck.

Shan, you should send it to the address that has the zip code: S19BL, and not the one that was posted in ur page.

And one more thing, I advice you to use DD or Credit Card as Debit Card (mostly master cards) wont go through with Online Payments like this. Even it fails for Retail expenditures.

Credit cards were never a problem provided you have around 35K rupees in ur card. It will go through as in my case.

All the best

hi Shankar,

ICICI Debit card payment owuld not go thru.
USE ICICI/some other credit card. If you dont have one...get it from one of your friends..
