      Two information that had me confused while in the Visa appointment process and payment process, which i found out.

      1. ACCOUNT TYPE: BANA MUMBAI Account, TIER1.... > This is a CURRENT ACCOUNT and the subtype is DOMESTIC.
      I had to research a lot to get this data. When i added it as a Savings account in my ICICI bank the payment was always failing.

      2. RECEIPT NUMBER : What is this number? Where will i get it? I had no clue about it and tried adding the confirmation number.
      Eventually i realized that we have to wait for some time. It took around 3-4 hours for me when i finally found a mail in my mail box with the receipt number. Actually it is similar to the TIER1.... account number, where you have to remove the first 5 chars including TIER & 1 (or 2). The remaining 12 chars are the receipt number. And you dont need to do anything,. When you log back into the visa site, the number was auto updated there and i just had to go and get and appointment.

      Hope this helps others.

      Can some one help me with instructions on paying visa fees using IMPS for 2 applicants? H1 and H4.
      Ustrveldoc website show Total Fee INR 25840.00 but IMPS page shows Amount: INR 12920 for only one applicant.

      Should I pay INR 25840.00 in a single transaction or make 2 transactions of INR 12920 on same MMID?
      Even though ustraveldocs site says - Remember to make only one payment per unique account number.

      Kind of confusing. Please help.
