    • The notice demanded the return of Cashback.

Yeah, I got it. I'm ignoring it for now. They have to prove their ground of business and commercial use to ask for a refund of cashback as per my general understanding.

And we can file a case against them too that how can they keep user in dark and and operate a wallet without getting license from RBI.
