OYO — No room at hotel despite confirmed booking and refund of advance payment

I have made this booking at OYO 85109 on 17th May. I was bit skeptical and called up the hotel to confirm about my booking and to my surprise the hotel person said he will not give me the room at the booked price and I need to pay Rs 1000/- if I want Room or should reach out to Oyo for resolution. I called up your contact centre and they paid balance amount of Rs 582/- as a voucher to the hotel directly to resolve this. I was under the impression that issue is resolved and reached to the hotel directly spending Rs. 356 for a cab on 18th May 2.30PM for checking in. Upon arrival The hotel person denied to give the room stating the pump has gone out of order and there is no water supply. He has also confirmed that they have informed you about the same but still Oyo is continuing with fresh booking. Once again I ended up calling your contact centre and was put on hold for 10 mins post which the call got disconnected from your end . I have requested them to help me getting room in another Oyo but there was no response except the auto mail acknowledging my complaint. In nut shell we were left on the road in scorching heat without any resolution. My family was so upset and forced me to book another hotel not through Oyo this time. I was left with no choice then to take room in another Oyo Flagship 78142 ( through and paid Rs. 1264/- I hereby request you to refund the following amonut to me on priority 1. Advance paid Rs 124/- at the time of booking 2 cab charges to reach the hotel Rs 356 3. The differential amount I ended up paying to book room in another Oyo Hotel through Rs 762 ( 126* -***) The worst part is that you cant reach out to customer care team responsible for refund as there is no option of selecting refund desk extension on their IVR when you dial 931393**** . If you select fresh booking, they just tranfer the call internally & no one picks up hereafter even after waiting for 15 mins. Sharing the screenshot from my OyO app clearly stating a reund of Rs. 124/- against this booking. More than 45 days have passed and I am yet to get this amount back despite repeated assurance's from OYOs SM escalation team.

Please find below the mails exchanged with OYOs escalation desk.

I fail to understand on what basis you have confirmed that the amount has been processed successfully. It's going to be more than 24 hours & I am yet to receive this amount. The unfortunate part is that there is no response to the mail I wrote to you 9 hours ago stating non-remittance of the payment.
While you are making tall claims that you carry out periodic audit & quality checks of the hotels, I feel it's an eye wash and the failure of making the refund despite assurance is live evidence to it.

warm regards
