Scotia back rejects even for a minor mistake.

I just finished transferring the funds, earlier today. However, I have a question: My Account Name as per my Indian account is in the format - Surname GivenNames while CIBC has created an account for me with the format GivenNames Surname.
Will this cause an issue with the transaction? I have also mailed them informing this.
The money has already been debited from my account after the RTGS transfer.

I don't think you name will create a problem but you need to email the scan copy of A2 to cibc and later they will get back to you.

Thank you for your response! Hopefully they revert soon! How long does it typically take, given that I made the transfer this morning?

Thank you very much. If you don't mind me asking, I want to ask some questions about the Online General Study Permit process. May I start a conversation with you?
Thx.
Hey, can you share your experience if you transferred the GIC online? I am also planning to send thru Netbanking RTGS. Please confirm if you got the GIC certificate and in how many days?

No, I went to my bank to transfer the amount. Took me 2 days to receive my GIC.

that should not be problem as GIC amount you will get once you come here cant use it for 'Travel for Education".
I don't think address will create you problem as my cousin had same issue as her bank address was different than passport address( some minor things)
Bank might not be ready to stamp and sign the A2 as its not WIRETRASFER but that not a big deal CIBC Will not create problem for this.
Thank you for your reply.
One more thing, the A2 form we get from CIBC also has a deceleration (under FEMA 1999). Do we need to fill that and what should I mention, my college fee payment details? It also says to mention total amount in USD whereas all my transaction was done in CAD.

I had not filled that part of the form as it was not required.
