  1. I need to know, when will I get my Prerana money in my account?

  2. I lost my password. How can I retrieve my password now?

  3. The site is not opening. What should we do now?

  4. I lost my password and tried to recover it but I did not get OTP code. When I try to recover and enter my data and submit then the computer screen shows that your password has been sent your registered mobile number. So how to apply for PMS?

  5. When I enter the 10th details, it shows that “your 10th details not found”. What should I do?
