National Automatic Clearing House (NACH) is an interbank payment system that is used for transferring payments in cases of bulky, frequent, or high-volume transfers. NACH works by providing for a mandate that allows an institution to debit or credit money from an individual’s account. For NACH to work, the individual must first register the mandate, which is to say, authorise the institution to debit or credit money from their debit cards or credit cards. In a few scenarios, a customer might want to cancel the mandate. Read on to learn more about the NACH Mandate Cancellation process.
Suppose you have taken a loan from your bank that you are now required to repay in EMIs. You can pay your EMIs in two ways - either manually make the EMI payment each month or authorise the bank to automatically debit the EMI amount from your account each month. In the second case, you would first need to register a NACH mandate. However, if after giving the NACH mandate, suppose you now want to stop the bank from automatically debiting the EMI amount from your account. In this case you would want to opt for NACH mandate cancellation. NACH cancellation is needed not just in case of loans but in case of any other service in which money is being automatically debited from your account by an institution such as when paying utility bills
The cancellation of a NACH mandate is a straightforward process. If a customer needs to withdraw or cancel a mandate, he or she can do so by contacting the user institution and requesting that the mandate be canceled. The account holder/client can also remove the mandate/debit instruction straight from his/her banker, bypassing the user institution. In such instances, a customer's withdrawal instructions would be considered as a "stop payment" instruction in the cheque clearing system.
The RBI publicly stated that you can approach your bank or other institution to which you have provided such NACH mandate, meaning the lender of your bank, electricity board, water board, mutual fund company, or any organization to which you have authorized to collect the money from your bank account.
A few Mutual Funds, Banks, or Stock Brokers allow you to cancel your NACH mandate cancellation request online. However, there are many that do not provide such services, making it difficult for you to cancel your mandate. In this case, approaching your bank and requesting NACH cancellation is the best option.
