While applying for Rights Shares, when I try paying from my own account I'm getting an error "3rd party validation failed". What could be the reason?

The error could pop up because of reasons like incorrect registered name, incomplete name in the bank record, etc. The best way to resolve this issue is to check directly with the RTA(Registrar and Transfer Agent).

To know more about Rights Issue, get the SEBI FAQs here, NSE FAQs here and BSE FAQs here.
